The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) is now accepting applications for the 2019 session of The Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists in Brittany, France.

The selection committee seeks four to eight artists whose mix of media, approaches, styles and focus will create a dynamic and collegial community. The residency is open to all practicing visual artists regardless of affiliation or citizenship who are not students at the time of application.

Session dates: Saturday, June 1 to July 27, 2019
Application deadline: February 1, 2019
Awards announced: March 1, 2019

The eight-week Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists is held in the medieval riverside village of Léhon, which is graced by a medieval abbey, gardens and the ruins of the oldest fortress in Brittany on a hill overlooking the village. Léhon is a short walk from the city of Dinan, which holds the coveted designation "Cité d'Art et d'Histoire," and is close to Dinard, St. Malo, Mont Saint Michel and Rennes. The fishing villages and beaches of the Emerald Coast are also nearby. Our artists have free access to the Léhon abbey and its gardens.

Competitive residencies are open to all practicing non-student visual artists and artist-couples (both must be accepted). In particular, we are looking for artists who can use the specific character of our residency experience productively.

Complete and detailed information, including the online application form, is available here.
