A creative residency program organized cooperatively by artists for artists
Welcome to the Artcroft home page. We hope that this will be your first step to new opportunities for creative growth. Every practicing artist should have the chance to concentrate on his or her work for a period of time without the multitude of daily distractions that hamper our lives. Time set aside for revitalizing the creative spirit, pursuing new trains of thought, or concentrating on an idea already in the works are essential parts of being a productive artist. Artcroft’s pastoral setting offers the practicing artist a tranquil, natural environment in which to think, plan, and work. Set on 400 acres of rolling Kentucky hills, Artcroft is a working cattle ranch replete with wildlife ponds, wildflower festooned meadows, and spectacular nightscapes. Experience the restorative power and sense of professional accomplishment that a stay at Artcroft can bring. Inspiration and discovery are built in.
Artcroft Creative Center in Millersburg is being developed to bring creative individuals into greater contact with the public for the mutual benefit of all parties. Millersburg has a population of approx.. 800 people Located in central KY . within 15 miles of Artcroft Farm. The Founders of Artcroft believe day today exchange within the local community will add greatly to the cultural life of Millersburg and give artist opportunities to share their work in new ways yet to be explored. The extensive renovations of a major commercial block of buildings in the center of town on hwy 68 have give a much appreciated lift to the image of the community. Programing of exhibitions and events have and will provide a vibrant opportunity to enjoy the arts.
We encourage applicants to our residency program to seek opportunities to meet with our community members and share their vision of art and creativity. Working in the studios, exhibiting in the Artcroft Gallery, assisting in hosting community events could lead to greaert perspective to the practice of art and to our community members.
Artcroft Founders wishes to thank our former Residents who over several years have contributed their talents and skills to this all volunteer effort. It has been wonderful to follow the success of writers gaining publication hearing of exhibition in major cities and professional recognition well earned by those we now consider friends.
