Residency: Soaring Gardens Artists Retreat

Soaring Gardens Artists Retreat in Laceyville, PA, offers visual artists, writers, composers, and instrumentalists a quiet country setting for two- to five-week residencies to focus on their creative endeavors. Spaces are available from mid-May to through September. Soaring Gardens has no fees, makes no demands, and there are no intrusions from the administration - only the studios, gardens, deer, other creatures, and time. The residency is located in a farmhouse with an adjacent studio building and in a small nearby church. At any time, there are only a few artists in residence - usually three or four at the farmhouse and two at the church. Since residents share the living spaces, we encourage artists to apply as a group (a combination of artistic disciplines is fine), although applications from individuals are also welcome. Residents need a car to get to Soaring Gardens and to use while they are in residence. There is no public transportation close by. Artists are expected to shop, cook, and clean up after themselves; a gardener maintains the grounds. As the purpose of the residency is to provide time for undisturbed work, no children, pets, or overnight visitors are permitted. Deadline: March 10, 2019. Apply online. Contact: email
