Two week solitary residency in a remote valley in Northeast Nevada.

Description of residency program

Montello Foundation is a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility and our need to protect it.

“In my walks, I discovered an emptiness and an amplitude – hidden pathways and an internal pace that required me toremain at once observing and observant of the natural realm. My solitude illuminated the world around and a world within - infusing each action with stillness, silence, surface and sky. ” 

- Sara Morawetz, resident 2017

Duration of residency: 2 weeks

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance: Open to all disciplines, but the work has to relate to our mission: Montello Foundation is a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility and our need to protect it. There are basic tools available and plenty of nature around the house including an amazing night sky. There is no assistance since there is no staff at the retreat.

Accommodation: Private cabin, no other residents or staff at the retreat.

Studio/ workspace: private studio (400 sq ft / 36 sq m) with northern light.

Fees and support: There is no fee to stay at the retreat, however the residents have to provide their own transportation and supplies. In the moment we are not offering stipends, but are happy to assist residents with their own fundraising.

Expectations towards the artist: a sense of adventure and afterwards a brief text and images for our annual report. 

Application information: apply with 8 images or video clips or texts (excerpts) and a brief artist’s statement. Details on the web page below.
The jury is comprised of 3 artists and/or curators, past jurors include Jennifer McGregor, Micol Hebron, Yasmeen Siddiqui, Adam Bateman, Gabriel DeGuzman, Leah Oates and Monika Wührer.
