Mackie Lake House Artist-in-Residence Program 2016


The Mackie Lake House Foundation and Vernon Public Art Gallery are pleased to announce the call to the artists for the 2016 Mackie Lake House Artist-in-Residence program. 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 a four-week long exhibition at the Vernon Public Art Gallery which will include working sketches and finished works produced during 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.
