Steep Rock Arts


Prospective applicants: please read carefully before applying. Steep Rock Arts is a small not for profit group. Therefore, given the volume of applications we receive each year, we are not able to respond to each application. Winners will be notified by the beginning of February only. In addition, all applicants should consider that the residency is an opportunity to have two month in solitude. Residents are on their own for most of the time in a small town. Neighbors are friendly and there are nearby shops - but it is a small, quiet village. Residents should feel comfortable working and living on their own (or with their families)
