The Artist House Residencies
Short history of The Artist House
The Artist House was established in 2003 as a residency program for artists, art historians, critics, curators and writers sponsored by the Departments of Art & Art History and English. In the program’s first ten years, it had two interrelated program goals: 1) to support creative artists, with both emerging and established careers, by offering them the time and space to create new work and 2) to develop programming in which artists-in-residence share their work with the campus and local communities. The Artist House accommodates two residents at a time, and residencies have ranged from 1 week to a full semester. Modest honorariums have been offered in exchange for interaction with students in classes, lectures and workshops. See Artists-in-Residence 2003-2012
The New Artist House Programs beginning Fall 2012
With the start of the 2012-13 academic year, The Artist House program will expand and change to provide three types of residencies. All residencies are by invitation only.
AAH Resident Fellows
In the fall and spring semesters, the Department of Art and Art History will sponsor one AAH Resident Fellow who will be in residence for the full semester and will teach one course in either studio art or art history for the department. A limited number of short-term residencies will continue to be sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History. Read about AAH Residencies for 2012-13
CoLab Residency: Time + Space 2 Collaborate
For these experimental and interdisciplinary residencies, SMCM faculty in any department or discipline can invite their research/collaborative partner to work on a project already underway or invite someone with whom they would like to collaborate in the future for an exploratory residency. Accommodation for the collaborative partner is provided in The Artist House for a 1-2 week residency (1-week minimum). Read about CoLab Residencies in 2012-13.
Retreat location on the St. Mary’s College campus
Situated on a secluded part of the St. Mary’s College of Maryland campus, the Artist House provides a retreat environment for two residents at a time. Each resident fellow is given a private bedroom and a separate office or studio workspace. Residents share bathroom and kitchen facilities plus living room, dining room, screened porch and peaceful grounds. Residents are responsible for travel arrangements and expenses, and purchase and cook their own food. Residents have access to college amenities and facilities that include computer labs with high-end digital imaging capabilities, library and media center, Campus Center with a book and art supply store, dining hall, snack bar, coffee shop, cinema and lounge areas, and recreational facilities that include a gym and the college's waterfront on the St. Mary's River with sailing, kayaking and other sports. College lectures, movies, performances and other similar activities are open to residents. Adjacent to the campus is Historic St. Mary's City, a museum of history and archaeology on the site of Maryland's colonial capital. Nearby state parks offer an array of hiking and walking trails, and swimming and boating opportunities.
