The Monhegan Artists’ Residency provides studio and living space at two locations on the island.

Elva’s Old P.O. – Apartment and Studio

Monhegan’s historic post office building is centrally located at the top of Wharf Hill with a large deck overlooking the island meadow. It offers a spacious kitchen and living room on the first floor with bedroom, bath, and studio on the second floor. The apartment and studio share the building with Elva’s Old P.O. gift shop, next door to the Lupine Gallery. The space is used for the June and July residencies.

The Shumaker Studio

This newly renovated cottage is situated across the road from the Trailing Yew Inn near the Monhegan Church. There is a studio/living area in the front, with bedroom, bath, kitchen and deck overlooking one of Monhegan’s prized flower gardens. Over the years, the studio has served the needs of many notable Monhegan artists including Fred Wiley, Don Stone, and Philip Shumaker. The cottage is the site for the fall residency.

Both residences have internet connections, but no land-line phone access.

No guests may stay in the apartments during residencies, and no pets are allowed. No smoking in the living quarters or studios please.
