2018 Artist Residency Opportunities at the Joseph A. Fiore Art Center 

The mission of the Joseph A. Fiore Art Center at Rolling Acres Farm is to actively connect the creative worlds of farming and art making.

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.

The late Joseph Fiore was an artist and active environmentalist who, with his wife Mary, generously supported Maine Farmland Trust for many years.

In 2018 we will be offering the following residencies; please visit our website to learn more about each residency and apply. Deadline is March 1st.
