We offer residencies to professional creative artists from all nations and backgrounds working in one or more of the following disciplines: choreography, film, literature, musical composition, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video. Residencies last from one week to three weeks and include room, some board and a studio. There is no fee to come to Maison Albion.

All artists are encouraged to apply! Generally, those who will qualify for Maison Albion residencies are either working at the professional level in their fields or are emerging artists whose work shows great professional promise.  

Maison Albion will not discriminate against any individual, employee, or application for residency on the basis of race, color, marital status, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, disability, or any other legally protected status recognized by federal, state, or local law—we strongly encourage applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in arts and culture to apply. Please note: residential rooms at Maison Albion are not ADA accessible.

  1. Literature: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, librettos, and graphic novels.

  2. Visual Art: painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, mixed media, and installation art.

  3. Music Composition: instrumental forms, vocal forms, electronic music, music for film, and sound art.
