Enriching lives through art and craft

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Arrowmont was unable to offer the Arrowmont Artist-in-Residency for the 2020-2021 year.  The residency candidates selected for the 2020-2021 cohort have been deferred to the 2021-2022 year instead.

Therefore, Arrowmont is not seeking applications for the Artist-in-Residency for the 2021-2022 period.  We encourage anyone interested in the program to follow our social media channels and check our website for any updates or information. If new applications open for 2021-2022, that update will be posted here, across our social media, and through our eBlasts – click here to sign up for our newsletter.  We hope to return to a normal application cycle for the 2022-2023 Artist-in-Residency.

How to Apply

The ideal candidate for the Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program is an early career, self-motivated individual able to work well independently and within a larger organization. The successful resident is eager to be involved with Arrowmont’s diverse existing program offerings such as workshops, conferences, events and exhibitions. Candidates who enjoy the team spirit in working with staff, other residents and visiting artists/instructors are encouraged to apply. The artists selected each year work in a variety of media which reflects the strength of Arrowmont workshop offerings and resources. The Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program is open to permanent residents of the United States.
