Artists in Residence (AiR) at Galerie Huit live and work within the thick stone walls of a prestigious, beautifully restored 17th century mansion.
Exhibition spaces and convivial living quarters occupy the ground and lower floors.
The upper floors comprise occasional seminar rooms, guest rooms and self-contained apartments for artists residencies.
AiR at Galerie Huit provides a retreat from the distraction of everyday life and a valuable opportunity for artists to focus solely on their creative work.
As an independent, self-funded residency, we have a commitment to serving artists and keeping our prices as close to running costs as possible. Although we cannot provide grants, we are happy to provide advice or documentation for artists wishing to find third-party grant support or other funding for a residency.
