"The Shape of Memories"

August 24 to September 22, 2019
Deadline for entries: July 15, 2019

Memories are often said to be our link to the past, while at the same time helping to shape our future. Memory is defined, in part, as being vital to experiences and important for the retention of information over time, which influences future action. Our memories make us who we are and differentiate us from others. The power of memory has been expressed through the arts for centuries. Artists often draw on their memories or the memories of others as inspiration for their work.

Open call 2019
Residency and retreat in Italy La Macina di San Cresci

Find inspiration in the timeless Tuscan countryside! Live and work in the shadow of the oldest church in all of Chianti, built in the 10th century, painstakingly restored by two lifelong art lovers skilled in design and architecture. La Macina di San Cresci overlooks the classic Tuscan town of Greve in Chianti and is located just a short drive from Florence and Siena. La Macina di San Cresci is a unique place where artists can live and work together in historic buildings surrounded by gorgeous hillsides dotted with vineyards and olive groves. La Macina offers guest artists the chance to recharge and reset by enjoying walks in the countyside, moonlit dinners in the garden with plenty of delicious food, wine, and friends, and a spacious studio to create new work. La Macina operates year round and accepts residency applications on a rolling basis (there are no deadlines!). At La Macina, artists can find whatever sort of process they need; we have a thriving and close-knit community made up of visiting artists and local friends, but there is plenty of peace and quiet for those who seek relaxation and escape. Residents can take classes in fresco, watercolor, Florentine artisanal upholstery, paper decoration, and more. Artists will also have the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on outings to local sites with cultural and historical significance. We are happy to arrange other activities, like Italian language lessons and cooking classes. We actively promote the work of all our artists through exhibition, open studios, and features on our website and social media. We also publish a yearbook called “The Artistic Time” in order to share the work of all our resident artists with our network. Partners and families are welcome!
