A unique experience, Golden Apple Art Residency is located approximately an hour north of Bar Harbor along the rocky coastal region of Downeast Maine. Within a very quiet and secluded location, the residency grounds are situated near the tip of Ripley’s Neck down a long and winding road outside of Harrington, where both the main house and the residency cottages are less than two hundred feet from shore. It is in this remote, naturally rugged and picturesque environment that our artists find the support and inspiration to create.
Golden Apple Art Residency offers three sessions, two weeks in duration, during the summer months of July, August, and early September. Full and partial scholarships are available and applicants are automatically considered for scholarship assistance. The residency hosts visual artists and writers, providing unique inspiration for photographers and painters.
Golden Apple Art Residency also hosts workshops and classes. This summer artists are invited to attend “The fundamental approach to Plein Air Painting” (August 24 - 28, 2015) with Larry Blovits. This class offers artists of all levels the chance to explore landscape painting at Golden Apple Art Residency's beautiful waterfront property. Read more.
