Artist in Residence Program

A grant from the Tillotson North Country Foundation is enabling the Connecticut River Artisan Group (CRAG) to sponsor an artist in residence in the area.

The artist will be free to create their works of art.  The individual will be involved in one or more public programs during which visitors can see the Artist in Residence at work and learn more about – and, ideally, participate in their work and artistic process.

The Artist in Residence receives a $2,000 stipend. Travel expenses, materials costs, and other expenses associated with the Residency are the responsibility of the Artist in Residence. Free housing is provided.

The artist will be required to donate one piece of work and reproduction rights to CRAG.  While pursuing their art, the Artist in Residence will need to follow state and local regulations. The Artist in Residence will be expected to sign a volunteer agreement and liability agreement.  Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have access to their own transportation.

For more information or to apply for the residency, please contact Nancy Smith at [email protected].

The artist in residence for July and August of 2023 is Barbara Nedd.  Barbara brings a wealth of experience to the visual arts and will be involved in exhbits, presenting classes, and other CRAG activities.  Barbara will be participating in the following events.
