CUAC collaborates with Birch Creek Ranch, located in high-desert Sanpete Valley, just outside of Spring City, Utah on an 80-acre juniper forest on the skirt of Horseshoe Mountain.  The residency is open to 1-3 artists at a time with the average stay being about three weeks.  The rotation is organic and the terms for each residency are worked out on an individual basis.  Residents say in a straw-bale building with bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry, kitchen, and common area.  There is a studio building a short walk away.

There are limited spots available Jan-May on a rolling schedule.  Send an email with a link to your work (or with work attached) and a statement of purpose.  Also pay $15 application feel by donating here.   


At this time, artists are responsible for their own materials, food, and transportation, though there is no fee associated with the residency.


To apply, please send a PDF with ten images, a description of your work, a resume, a link to your website, and proposed dates to art(at)cuartcenter(dot)org, put ‘residency applicaion’ in the subject line.  Review of applications is on an ongoing basis. We thank all applicants for their interest. Only applicants selected for an exhibition will be contacted.
