North Mountain is an artist residency open to those who work in visual mediums, installation, performance, text, research forms, and sound, who seek dedicated time and space to develop their practice in a rural, arts-driven environment. The three-week summer residencies provide comfortable living and working space in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. During their time spent on site, artists are encouraged to take risks in developing new processes, to make friends, and to engage in the rich environmental and cultural contexts of Appalachia. We invite applications from all artists: emerging, established, in-transition, and self-taught.

Applications are now closed for the Summer 2016 residency season. Please keep in touch for information about next year’s season.
