AWARDS A rotating panel of experts and professionals in the arts and humanities independently review applications and supporting materials. Final awards of residencies are at the discretion of Jentel. In some instances, artists and writers are invited to participate without submitting an application.
FACILITIES Residencies provide time, space and facilities for research, experimentation and production for work and ideas in the visual and literary arts. Residents are at liberty to structure their own time and activity. They may choose to maintain their privacy or to engage with other residents and activities at Jentel. Each resident is offered separate living accommodations and work-space. Large well lighted studios are equipped with running water and adequate light for late work. One studio is equipped with a Takach Garfield litho press with a 32 x 48 inch bed for monotypes. Separate, quiet studios are reserved for writers. Writers need to bring their own writing materials and laptops. Areas inside and outside are reserved for residents. Common spaces include a library, recreation area, and a great room. A large kitchen adjacent to the living area may be used for food and meal preparation. A monthly stipend is provided to help defray personal expenses.
