Alaskan Residency Opportunity

Are you the adventurous type? Voices in the Wilderness is an unique artist-in-residence program where intrepid artists can explore the wilderness landscapes of Alaska.

2012 A.I.R. Susan Watkins paints the College Fiord in 
Nellie Juan-College Fiord WSA, Chugach National Forest.

Regions include some of Alaska's most remote wilderness areas, including the Kootznoowoo Wilderness, Tongass Misty Fjords National Monument, and the Nellie Juan-College Fiord Wilderness Study Area. 

Wilhelm Kuhnert (1865-1926), Walruses 

They'll partner you with a wilderness professional who will guide you to the best places to paint and study and make sure you're safe.

Applications are now being accepted for this summer. The deadline is March 1. More info at Voices in the Wilderness

Thom, the program is open to international artists of all mediums, so you'd be welcome to apply.
