Alchemy Artist Residency

Alchemy 2019. Open Call for two new spots-artists, chefs, makers all welcome to apply.

Alchemy Artists Residency, Prince Edward County, ON

Program Dates: 
August 9-20, 2019, Submission deadline for two new spots: MAY 5 midnight

ALCHEMY is a 12-day residency devoted to exploring the synergy 
between artistic practice and the sharing of food in a community 
setting. Artists immerse themselves in their varied practices during Prince Edward 
County's lush summer season, while contributing creativity to lively salon-style 
communal dinners. Readings and discussions probe the intersections of food and art.

Guest talks and visits from local farmers, makers and artists help us better understand the inspiration generated by making and sharing art and food in community settings.

ALCHEMY is led by two strong advocates for these ideas:
Claire M. Tallarico is a visual artist, cook and urban gardener. Through her practice Claire explores how the everyday activities of art making and food sharing can make a difference in our communities.

Tonia Di Risio is a visual artist. Her work has developed through ongoing investigations of the growing, making, preserving, celebrating and sharing of food.

ALCHEMY 2019 is limited to 12 participants. Residents live and work in neighboring farmhouses in a quiet corner of Prince Edward County called Hillier. The County is known for its strong agricultural roots, a thriving arts and cultural community, outstanding natural beauty and farm-to-table cuisine.

Fees plus taxes (CAD): $1275.00 for single, $1150.00 for double, $1050.00 for triple bedrooms (includes housing, shared meals, studio space, guest artist talks and an Open Studio event). 

Artists with an appetite for living in a community setting while creating art and shared meals are encouraged to apply. Applications must include artist CV, artist statement, a letter of intent, and images/artist website.
