Two artists will be selected for summer residencies.
Our micro residency invites an artist to spend three days completing a proposed project in our cozy New Hampshire studio. Artists can utilize our pair of two-color Riso MZ790 printers and 14 ink colors to produce a series of prints, an artist book or zine publication, or anything else they dream up. Artists also have access to our letterpress facilities, as well as finishing and bindery equipment.
Artists will be able to create on beautiful paper during their residency thanks to the generous support from Monadnock Paper Mills, a 200 year old family-run paper mill in nearby Bennington, New Hampshire — the oldest continuously operating paper mill in the United States!

We’re able to offer resident artists a free housing option for the duration of their stay—a private bedroom in our apartment located a short walk from the studio.

No financial assistance is available for these options.
Artists are welcome to arrive the evening before and depart the morning after their residency period.
