Associated Residency Program

Experience the remarkable landscape and atmosphere of a working cattle ranch in the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains.

Experience a place where time passes in the quietude as it did 50 to 100 years ago.

Experience time apart from daily concerns.

Experience an environment in which to concentrate on personal artistic development.

Experience a place where the creative process is honored and the artist is valued.

The Jentel Artist Residency offers dedicated individuals a supportive environment in which to further their creative development and investigation.

Additional Eligibility Information

Any visual artist or writer currently residing in the United States or any U.S. citizen living abroad is eligible. Individuals currently pursuing an academic degree program or enrolled in nine or more credits are ineligible to apply until after they complete their program. Preference is given to those twenty-five and over.

In a low-tech and equipment-free environment, the studios offer visual artists a place that is only limited by the imagination. The space honors the creative process with time to explore, experiment, refine, and develop in the world of ideas without the need to fully realize a finished product. The cozy and comfortable writer studios, the visual artist studios, and the residence have internet access.

Jentel is especially attractive to those who wish to take responsibility for themselves and their daily routine, while they focus on their studio work, engage with the expansive landscape, and share in a small community of creative individuals. Here artists and writers experience unfettered time to allow for thoughtful reflection and meditation on the creative process in a setting that preserves the agricultural and historical integrity of the land. Solitude is balanced with the opportunity to form a community.
