Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International professional artists to participate in a year-long artist residency program. Funding is intended to offer artists the opportunity to focus on their art and develop professionally in a supportive atmosphere and remote location in Roswell, New Mexico. Applications are accepted from artists involved in painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation, and other fine art media.

For over 45 years the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program has provided talented artists with the chance to free themselves from the entanglements of their jobs, careers and other responsibilities, to focus on their creative imaginations. Roswell is remotely located, away from the trends and noise of the cultural capitals and provides the artist an opportunity to look inwardly, over an entire year, at the sources of their vision and the reach of their talent. The Program is solely dedicated to the development of the individual artist.  

The studios are large, open spaces that measure approximately 30 'x 25 'x 10'. These areas are well-lighted and convertible to the artist's requirements. Artists are housed in a complex of six houses and 10 studios located on fifty acres of land. Each artist is provided with a house that can amply accommodate either a single person or a family. Rent, utilities (except telephone), repairs and maintenance costs are borne by the Program. Houses are furnished with major furniture items, appliances and utensils within reason. The printmaking facility is a small, fully operational studio - basically lithographic/etching in nature.
