Artist Residency Opportunities at Taleamor Park near Chicago and Lake Michigan
Located on a scenic farm near Chicago and Lake Michigan, Taleamor Park hosts two-week and longer residencies for writers and other artists seeking quiet time and ample space.
Co-directors Clifford and Lisa Lee Peterson seek to create a loving, esthetic, and respectful atmosphere and environment that balances the need for creative solitude with a desire for community.
Residents share a spacious 1854 Italianate brick farmhouse with two bathrooms, two kitchens, two common rooms, four private air-conditioned bedrooms, a library, a writing nook, and a paper studio.
Vintage outbuildings offer several private studio spaces that are suitable for writing and photography, drawing and painting, large-scale work and installations, performances and video projections.
Outdoors, expansive fields of grain are divided by verdant walking trails that lead to woods and ponds and scenic vistas, At night, it is dark, so there are stars.
There is a simple online application form due six weeks before the start of the proposed residency, but later applications are considered whenever space remains. However, applications for assistantships for any 2017 date are due February 14, 2017.
Tiered fees are reasonable, and assistantships waive all fees except for a $100 non-refundable deposit. There is no application fee.
The 2017 season runs from April through October, but flexibly scheduled, reduced-fee, off-season residencies are available November through April. Off-season applications are welcome anytime, preferably by January 14, 2017.
