Artist is Awarded Fellowship by the Jentel Artist Residency Program
Carol V. Davis of Los Angeles, California, has been awarded a fellowship by the Jentel Artist Residency Program. Jentel is located in a rural setting on a working cattle ranch in the Lower Piney Creek Valley approximately 20 miles southeast of Sheridan, Wyoming. Davis will be among the award recipients focusing on their own creative projects at this working retreat for artists and writers.
During the four-week long residency, Jentel provides space where artists and writers may focus on creating. Communal spaces are designated for research, recreation, food preparation, and dining. Each artist and writer is offered a private, furnished accommodation and a workspace. Each resident receives a stipend to help with living expenses during the program. Artists and writers can have time to allow for thoughtful reflection and meditation on the creative process. The residency provides a resource of time and space for artists to create their work.
