Wildlands Arts Residency



Wildlands Art Residency was founded with a deep commitment to art, to the environment, and the synergy of each illuminating the other.

The retreat-like setting and beauty of the landscape offers artists a quiet place to focus on their work without the demands of regular daily life, and to be responsive to the experience of spending time surrounded by nature. The founders wish to share their Sonoma County home and land in support of individual artists and the greater Bay Area arts community.

Wildlands will hold one three-week session for 3 selected artists from May 23rd – June 13th, 2020. Please subscribe to our email list below to receive announcements about the 2020 Program.



Eligible applicants in all mediums are encouraged to apply — painters, writers, musicians, dancers, architects, other.

  • established, dedicated, practicing artists
