For over fifty years the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program has provided talented artists working in any medium a full year to focus on their creative endeavors. Start dates of the six annual residency are staggered throughout the year. The residency provides each artist with a comfortable three bedroom house with attached 500 square ft studio with utilities paid plus $800 a month for artists, $100 for spouses and $200 for each child. Very few demands are made upon artist in residence but The Roswell Museum of Art generally extends an offer to residents to exhibit and lecture during their year. The 2019 call for applications closes March 15 with notifications by mid May.
