Brief description of residency program

The Truro Center for the Arts at Edgewood Farm sits on nearly 8 bucolic acres adjacent to the Cape Cod National Seashore, the Atlantic Ocean and town conservation land. The residency provides artists an opportunity to be in a quiet and contemplative place, within walking distance to the dunes, natural forests, ponds and spectacular beaches that are rated among the top ten most beautiful in the world. At a time when the natural environment is at risk, Edgewood Farm will offer artists a place to regain a connection to the natural world and draw inspiration from the environment.

Approximately 4 to 6 artists a month will have uninterrupted time to work in six studios. Residencies are open to writers, painters, printmakers, sculptors, musicians, ceramicists and farmers. Truro Center for the Arts at Edgewood Farm provides an open-studio residency that fosters a dynamic exchange of ideas among peers. It gives artists time to share work and discuss ideas across disciplines. Each participating artist will be required to give a reading or a lecture and gallery exhibition or performance to the Castle Hill community and the general public.

The residency programs are offered during 2 terms each year in the spring and fall for three months periods. Time frames will range from 2 weeks to one month to three month.
