Artist Residency Program

The Mary Sky Artist Residency is a haven for artists looking to bring a serious attitude and productive mindset to meaningful work.


Hosted in a tiny cabin on 25 acres of woodland hillside overlooking the White River, we invite artists to discover the time to work, interact with nature and get quiet.


Imagination and drive are the key ingredients.
