The Hermitage hosts accomplished and diverse artists on our Gulf-front Manasota Key campus for curated residencies. Some come to explore and experiment, some are working on a commission. There is no expectation of a completed work product from a Hermitage residency; we understand that artists require focused time to produce quality new work.
Artists are referred to us by the National Curatorial Council for our core residency program, which serves mid-career artists who are already making an impact in their field and who may benefit from dedicated time in a retreat setting. There is no application process.
Additional residency programs serve Sarasota County resident artists and Florida public school teacher/artists. Read more.
