Willowtail Springs offers residency scholarships

New Face Productions sponsoring two art residencies at Mancos center
Two residency scholarships are being offered for Willowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education Center in Mancos. The center offers a space for artists to practice their craft, and in this file photo from 2019, locals gather at Willowtail for a reading by writers Lisa and Kyra Taylor.

Willowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education Center is offering two full-residency scholarships to local artists this fall.

Residencies would last one week at the Mancos center, and scholarships are being sponsored by New Face Productions, a nonprofit supporting artistic endeavors in Southwest Colorado. Applicants must reside in Montezuma or La Plata County and be “an emerging, established or mid-career practitioner in the arts.”

The residency scholarship includes one furnished cabin, full use of Willowtail’s 60-acre property and 24-hour access to the 600-square-foot working studio. Participants would be required to take part in a community involvement program during or after the residency.

Applications are due by July 31, with awards announced Aug. 31. For more information visit the Willowtail website.
