AiR at Mackie Lake House


The residency is designed to offer established Canadian artists solitude and time to create. The residency includes a three-week stay at the Historic 1910 Mackie Lake House in Coldstream, BC, a $1000 honorarium, and an exhibition October 19-December 20 at the Vernon Public Art Gallery. The exhibition will include working sketches and finished works produced during the residency. Artists are responsible for their own transportation, food, communications and supplies while staying at Mackie Lake House, and they are also responsible for pick-up of work, or arrange the shipping of works after the completion of the exhibition at the VPAG. The honorarium will be given as $500 at the beginning of the residency and the balance upon the completion of the residency.

The purpose of the Artist-in-Residence program is to foster the discourse and production of visual arts by providing artists a place to pursue their artistic discipline in a tranquil location away from their normal busy life. One work of art inspired by the location and produced during the Residency will be donated to the Foundation to be displayed in the House. The artist will grant rights for the image to be reproduced as cards or small prints with full credit given to the artist.
