Artist-in-Residence Program

Our Program

MCP provides individual artists access to letterpress type, blocks and historic presses for their creative use. Chosen artist have access to studio and available equipment.

While in residence, artists have focused studio time to make their own work, host an “open studio”, and offer a series of short workshop/classes for the Mancos community including local school groups.  At the end of their residency, artists will curate an exhibition of their work and give a talk. 

The residencies build community engagement and a gallery presence on Grand Avenue in Mancos. A modest rental fee has been established to make sure the studio is accessible to our local artists.
