In an inspirational setting far removed from the distractions of daily life, Cuttyhunk Island Artists' Residency 2023 Fall Program will offer visual artists focussed time and a uniquely supportive natural and human environment to develop their work. On a small island off the coast of Massachusetts, CIAR will host a group of twelve artists to use the island itself as their studio. Living together in the historic Avalon Inn, the residents are invited to welcome nature into their artistic practice, as they create work inspired by their coastal surroundings, trade ideas, and learn from each other. Renowned figurative and landscape painter, Mario Robinson will join as the Visiting Artist, giving a slide talk about his work and sharing his expertise with the resident artists as he works alongside them on his own projects. Residents will build insight and camaraderie as they sit down to meals together, cooked by CIAR's wonderful chef. Click on the links below to learn more about the residency and how to apply.

Please note that, given the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19 and the communal setting at CIAR, we require all participants to be fully vaccinated and boosted before attending the residency. We will continue to follow the CDC and Massachusetts recommendations as the pandemic evolves, and we will update participants if there are any changes.
