ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

The Seven Below Arts Initiative Artist-In-Residence Program was established to foster artistic development and to support arts education in the state of Vermont. Seven Below, in partnership with Burlington City Arts, is pleased to request proposals for six-week residencies at The Barn near Burlington, Vermont. The residencies are designed to provide artists with a peaceful, inspiring, and supportive environment for individual and/or collaborative new work. The residency program is open to artists at any stage of their career and working in various visual arts media.  For brief biographies and links to current and past resident artist websites, please click the "Artists" link in the navigation bar. Also, the Seven Below Arts Initiative 2011 Catalog is now available for download here:

ELIGIBILITY:

The ideal applicant should be an artist with a history of rigorous work, excellent communication skills, and enthusiasm for interacting with other artists and the public. Although we cannot subsidize travel to Vermont, we encourage the participation of artists from outside New England as well as locally.

 

APPLICATION:

The deadline for 2014 application has now passed.


ACCOMMODATIONS:

Residents will live and work at The Barn, a uniquely restored property on 65 acres offering magnificent views of Mt. Mansfield and the Green Mountains. The 200-year-old Alan Irish Barn was reconstructed in 1996 and served as the recording and rehearsal facility for Phish, Trey Anastasio, and other musicians. In 2006, to support the activities of the Seven Below Arts Initiative, The Barn was retrofitted to provide living and workspace for up to three artists in residence at a time. The six chosen residents are selected from a diverse range of national and international applicants, and they are provided with a $2,000 materials and living stipend to help support the creation of new work.

 

They are joined by Seven Below Studio Manager and working resident R. Elliott Katz (www.relliottkatz.com).  Elliott lives and works on site and oversees daily operations at The Barn. 

 

 

Please contact Ashley Landers for more information or with questions.




Kristy

DEDICATED TO KRISTY MANNING

As the founding director of the Seven Below Arts Initiative, Kristy brought intelligence, enthusiasm, and an innate understanding of contemporary art to the program’s development. Her leadership and vision shaped what the program has become today: a rare and highly respected opportunity for talented artists to discover, create, learn and share their craft in Vermont. Kristy’s presence is deeply missed, but her contributions live on in the works of the many artists who benefitted from her commitment to advancing the arts. This book is dedicated to her memory.

 

 

“The artist is a receptacle for the emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” ~ Pablo Picasso
