Castle Hill at Edgewood Farm

Emerging Program member

The new residency program for The Truro Center for the Arts at Edgewood Farm is a pilot program developed to encourage the development of creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established artists. It works in collaboration with our distinguished educational facility at the Castle Hill Campus, whose mission is to foster the arts for the local and regional community. The Truro Center for the Arts at Edgewood Farm will focus on the development of “the artistic process” by providing artists a beautiful place to work for an extended period of time. The residency program at Edgewood Farm will strive to bring a broader artistic cultural conversation to the local community and economy of the Outer Cape, with artists from around the country and the world creating unique contemporary works of art.

The Truro Center for the Arts at “Castle Hill” was established in 1971 by a group of committed Cape Cod artists who transformed the nineteenth century barn into an art educational and community center in Truro, Massachusetts. Forty-six years later, Castle Hill continues to provide workshops, lectures, exhibitions, events and employment opportunities for residents and visitors in a relaxed, non-competitive environment that is conducive for learning about and creating art. The workshop curriculum offered at the Castle Hill Campus is for the beginner, intermediate or professional artist and allows students to explore a wide range of artistic mediums including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, ceramics, sculpting, writing, mixed media visual arts, culinary arts and gardening workshops.

The Truro Center for the Arts at Edgewood Farm sits on 11+ bucolic acres adjacent to the Cape Cod National Seashore, the Atlantic Ocean and town conservation land. The residency provides artists an opportunity to be in a quiet and contemplative place, within walking distance to the dunes, natural forests, ponds and spectacular beaches that are rated among the top ten most beautiful in the world. At a time when the natural environment is at risk, Edgewood Farm will offer artists a place regain a connection to the natural world and draw inspiration from the environment.

Approximately 6 to 8 artists a month will have uninterrupted time to work in six studios. Residencies are open to writers, painters, printmakers, sculptors, musicians, ceramicists and farmers. Truro Center for the Arts at Edgewood Farm provides an open-studio residency that fosters a dynamic exchange of ideas among peers. It gives artists time to share work and discuss ideas across disciplines. Each participating artist will be required to give a lecture or a reading, and gallery exhibition or performance to the Castle Hill community and the general public.

The residency programs are offered during 2 terms each year in the spring and fall for three months periods. Time frames will range from one month to three months, plus week-long retreats in September. In addition, Edgewood’s program includes a roster of visiting artists and writers who offer additional slide talks/readings and individual studio visits for the resident artists and the community.

The residency fee is $1,500 per month. Limited amount of Scholarships are available.
