We are very happy to be offering a residency at The Nature Conservancy's Carpenter Ranch in Hayden, Colorado. The residency will run from September 1-30, 2015. Special consideration is given to artists whose work involves land or water.
The ranch, located west of Steamboat Springs, is a working cattle ranch bordered by the Yampa river. Elk visit most nights and sandhill cranes can be heard throughout September. The artists share a three-bedroom house. Everyone gets their own bedroom and the kitchen/bath are shared. The artists have access to the whole ranch and can wander throughout the 900 acres. There are a variety of work spaces available, but if you have concerns please email me.
The application is available on our website. There is a $50 Application fee and the deadline is June 15, 2015. The application is not a difficult one, so don't panic.
For questions, contact Grant Pound, executive director
