NOW Open Studio -Artist Residency 2018

  • November 16, 2017

The goal of the NOW Open Studio Residency program is to provide a private oasis that fosters creative health and enables inspiration to flourish. After acceptance into the program individuals stay as guests in the NOW Open Studio private garden room relieving them of costly accommodation expenses. This two-week intensive stay in the vintage Sellwood borough of Portland, OR will enable artists to disconnect while reconnecting to their inner muse. Between the Zen of NOW and Portland’s vibrant urban core, artists are able to find their creative balance. NOW’s change of pace and space will inspire artists to be present …in the NOW.
