Since 2018 I have directed the residency program at Far Country.
Far Country Art Center is located in western Virginia, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our residency programs run year round with sessions in the fall, winter, spring and summer.
We strive to first remove entry barriers into accessible retreat environments for emerging, established, and marginalized artists. Our home is humble but vibrant; we believe that only after nurturing a truly inclusive community, all artists at their various career stages can grow together.
Our intention is to offer a safe and inclusive space for all. We open our home seeking to ensure that everyone has access to a nurturing environment to express their art irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion, economic, or other status.
