Open Call at Elsewhere Studios in Western Colorado

Transcend to new levels with your creative projects in an inspiring and unique space.

Description of residency program
The Residency Program provides space and time for artists. We welcome visual artists, writers, composer/musicians, performance artists at any stage of their careers as well as scientists, activists, teachers, students, or any kind of creative thinker interested in exploring and expanding their work in a unique and supportive environment. Elsewhere consists of artistically crafted and unique living and studio spaces. Time spans are individually based - 1 to 6 months, accommodating 4 to 6 artists at a time.

Elsewhere is a choose-your-own-adventure style residency. Situated in downtown Paonia, the spaces are versatile, providing residents with opportunities to connect and interact with other artists in the community, to create or participate in art exhibitions, and to teach classes or workshops.

Paonia is a small town nestled in a beautiful landscape of mountains and mesas covered with orchards, small ranches, and farms. It is about 1.5 hours from Grand Junction on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. Paonia is a community of unique and creative individuals with a strong interest in sustainability. It was recently designated as a Certified Creative District by the state of Colorado.

Private rooms. All rooms and spaces in the main house have radiant in-floor heat. Some have private bath, some have shared bath. The Gingerbread House is a separate dwelling and is heated with a wood burning stove.
