Last-Minute Residency Opportunities in Western Colorado at Aeolian Acres

Last minute chance to apply to our satellite location Aeolian Acres for a retreat style residency!

Description of residency program
As an extension of Elsewhere Studios' usual artist residency program, we are happy to partner with aeolian acres -- a space with its own unique and welcoming vibe. It is located off Hwy 133 between Paonia and Hotchkiss and provides more of a retreat style residency.

It is a special opportunity that is separate from Elsewhere Studios' normal programming. Artists-in-residence at aeolian have the option to participate in community events at Elsewhere Studios in town, share communal dinners, or have exhibitions, but can also choose to create their own solitary residency.

Accommodation
There are three living spaces for artists-in-residence within the house shared with Karen and Tony Hinkel (owners), and are divided into an ensuite apartment on the second floor with two bedrooms, and a small separate room off the studio on the main floor. The ensuite offers 500 sq ft of living space that includes two private bedrooms with a dedicated shared living area, new tiled ¾ tiled bath with an extra shared storage closet, and a kitchenette comprised of a small refrigerator, microwave and sink. There is a fold-out bed in the living area if you have a friend visiting for a night, a reading nook and a kitchen table with 4 chairs. The kitchenette is fully stocked with dishes, coffee pot, tea pot, toaster, silverware and linens. The bath is stocked with towels, shampoo/conditioner and locally made goat soap.
 
Studio/ workspace
The large art studio has a high ceiling and loads of natural light from 8 north facing windows. The space, while still a work in progress, is generous and can easily accommodate all three residents. We are working on moveable walls to corner off sections if you need more privacy to work. The studio provides dedicated storage areas for tools and materials. There is a wood burning stove and a refrigerator for your personal food and beverages. Creatives are to supply their own materials. The studio can also accommodate large artworks that can be moved through an oversized door.
