Joseph A. Fiore Art Center of the Maine Farmland Trust Residency Call
Historically, artists have celebrated the beauty and richness of the American landscape. Our purpose is to continue and evolve the dialogue between human and environment within the context of our current culture and time. We do this through exhibitions and public educational events, through research and development of new farming practices and by hosting residencies for artists on a working farm on Damariscotta Lake in the town of Jefferson.
Over the course of the summer the center will host six visual art residencies (five for Maine artists, one of which is reserved for an indigenous Maine artist; and one for an out-of-state or international artist), one performing arts residency, and one writing residency. There also will be a seasonal position for a resident gardener with an affinity for the arts,
