Apply for a Residency

We have good news, and bad news. The good news is that The Studios is preparing for a thorough renovation of the historic Carriage Trade Inn – home to the PEAR program – which will enhance our ability to support artists for a whole new generation. The bad news is that the renovations are expected to begin June 2022 and take a full year, so we will not be taking applications for residencies for the 2022-23 season.

If you would like to be put on a list to receive a notification when the residency application period opens up again, you can do so here.

Please stay tuned and check back in 2023!

SELECTION PROCESS

Applications are evaluated by selection committees comprised of working artists and professionals in the applicants’ respective fields of discipline under the four categories: Visual Arts, Literary Arts, Media Arts, and Musical Arts and Performing Arts.

Acceptance to The Studios’ Peyton Evans Artist Residency (PEAR) Program is based on the merit of past work and the potential for creative, intellectual and personal growth through the time and space to imagine new artistic work, engage in valuable dialogue and explore island connections.
