Seven Below Arts Initiative
The Seven Below Arts Initiative was established to foster artistic development and to support arts education in the state of Vermont. The residencies are designed to provide artists with a peaceful, inspiring, and supportive environment for individual and/or collaborative new work. The residency program is open to artists at any stage of their career and working in various visual arts media.
On the main floor, The Barn can accommodate painting, drawing, installation, and other "clean" working practices. A large portion of this open floor is divided into three studio spaces that are separated by dividers, configured to offer a separation of workspace as well as room for collaborative work. Tools include a table saw, a chop saw, a cordless drill, a hammer, a 1/4" socket set, allen wrenches and screwdrivers (special tool and material requirements are the responsibility of the artist). In addition to The Barn, residents will have limited access to Burlington City Arts studios (photography, printmaking, kiln, and clay).
The Barn includes three semi-private bedrooms, (one room for each artist), one shared kitchen, one shared bathroom, and extensive common space.
Rural location 30 minutes outside of Burlington, Vermont.
