Saltonstall Arts Colony 2017 Call for Entries is now live! Apply by: Monday, January 2

The Saltonstall Arts Colony in Ithaca, NY offers two-week and four-week residencies between May and September to New York State artists and writers looking for a quiet, supportive environment in which to focus on their craft.

The categories for 2017 include:

  • Poetry
  • Fiction & Creative Nonfiction
  • Photography (film or digital) & Filmmaking
  • PSVA: Painting | Sculpture | Visual Arts

Each residency session includes the same combination of five artists and writers: 1 poet, 1 fiction or creative nonfiction writer, 1 photographer or filmmaker, and 2 visual artists. Each group of five arrives and leaves together. These residencies are designed for individual artists and writers; we cannot accommodate collaborations or partners working together.

In an effort to include and serve artists and writers who cannot participate in a month-long residency, we will continue to offer two-week sessions in addition to three (3) month-long sessions, as we have since 2014.

CULTIVATE, directed by acclaimed composer-clarinetist Derek Bermel, is an annual, intensive creative workshop and mentoring program for gifted American composers in the initial stages of their professional careers. Each year, six young composers will be awarded Fellowships to participate in this weeklong emerging composers institute, which takes place at Aaron Copland’s National Historic Landmark home in Cortlandt Manor, one hour north of New York City, and at the historic Merestead estate in nearby Mount Kisco. Combining the most valuable elements of apprentice workshops and musical reading sessions, CULTIVATE nurtures young composers in realizing their creative ambitions as they begin their professional careers. The institute offers Fellows intensive compositional guidance in a rigorous, collegial, and nurturing environment before, during, and after the institute. Fellowships cover all costs for session participation and events, round-trip transportation within the continental U.S., accommodations, and food.

The application postmark-deadline for our acclaimed CULTIVATE emerging composers institute is December 15. As 2016 Fellow MICHAEL SMALL (seen at far right in red shirt in photo, during a work session with Music from Copland House) said, “CULTIVATE has a reputation as one of the best short-composition programs around … it offers a supportive workspace with excellent musicians whose goal was always to make the composer’s work clearer, more incisive, and give the greatest possible impact in performance.”

Thanks to the generosity of special Westchester Community Foundation Fellowships, CULTIVATE also encourages applications from gifted young composers born, raised, studying, living, and/or working in Westchester County, NY, who have completed their undergraduate studies and are now beginning to embark on their professional careers.
