Support the Residency

We encourage and appreciate your financial support of our mission to sustain the artistic growth of dedicated Maine artists by providing them the time and freedom for creative exploration in the artistically historic and inspiring environment of Monhegan Island.

Since we are an all-volunteer Board, every donation goes entirely to financing residency fellowships that provide living accommodations and studio space on Monhegan, uninterrupted work time, and stipends for three artists each summer.

By supporting the Monhegan Artists’ Residency with a donation, you are helping to nurture the creative process for individual artists who are awarded the residency. Over time, their experience on Monhegan ripples outward to enrich the art community in Maine and beyond.

MARC residencies have helped to advance careers, have supported artists while they take risks and shift directions, and have encouraged the creation of new work. You can become part of this pivotal process. Make a gift today to keep creativity alive for our artists! We thank you in advance.

“When on Monhegan I spent long days observing and documenting the landscape with the determination of a field biologist. I had never made art so consistently without having to attend to other aspects of my life, and I found myself becoming conditioned the way an athlete does. The residency provided me with an introduction to what committed daily art making can offer and continues to be the standard I strive for.”
