House Guests is an artists-in-residence and exhibition program that celebrates the history of the Garrett family, collectors and patrons of the arts, who hosted artists and musicians at their Evergreen estate during the first half of the 20th century. Every year Evergreen opens its doors to an artist and invites them to use the collections, the architecture and the grounds to practice in place. House Guests offers the public new ways to see and understand this historic place through the work of contemporary artists.
The House Guests Artist-in-Residence program provides housing, individual studio, and a stipend, allowing the artist the time and space to produce new work in a visually and culturally rich setting. One residency is awarded every year.
There is no formal application for the residency program. If you are interested in being considered, please send 10 slides or digital images on CD (not via email) of your work, two letters of recommendation, a written proposal (including detailed information on your residency plans), and a résumé to:
