Off-Grid Fall Artist-In-Residence in Vermont

The Sable Project

No Funding
Stockbridge, United States


This Residency is for adult artists of all ages, but specifically targeted at artists confident in their creative processes and willing to work on solo projects. Much like the fall season, this residency is a quieter, more introspective option than our summer residency. There will be fewer artists on the land (only 2-4), and the focus will be on diving deep into your creative work. Applicants are asked to outline a project they are interested in working on. If you are seeking a residency where you have a pristine studio and all day completely to yourself to focus on your craft, this may not be for you. But if you want to be outdoors, collaborate, form community, and live in a tent, this just may be the perfect fit! You will need to fill out the application on our website, as well as submit a website of your work, or a CV along with examples of your work. Deadline is June 1st, 11:59pm EST

Number of Participants

There will be between 2-4 artists on the land during September. In addition, a group of 2 Sable Team Members will live and work at the land, and will be there to help with the everyday needs of the resident artists.

Program Description

Residencies are 3 (three) weeks long in September only. 2019 Dates: September 8th-29th Our fee is $225-$450 for the 3 week session. Why the scale in price? Fall Residents are given the opportunity to either work on the land or not. If they choose to, they can work up to 12 hours per week, consisting of gardening work with our partner Fat Dragon Farm, trail building, brush moving, small construction projects, or other projects around the land. NOTE: It is important to us that Sable is accessible to all. No one will be turned away if you can't afford our residency fee. Please contact us at We are happy to help point you in the direction of funding sources or figure out a more in-depth work-trade so that you can be here.
