The Sou’wester Lodge is accepting applicants for its artist residency program.

SEAVIEW — The Sou’wester Historic Lodge is seeking artists to apply for the organization’s Sou’wester Arts Week, held March 7 to March 14.

Applications are due Jan. 8. During the event, artists and art collectives will reside at the lodge for a week and weekend. While staying in the lodge, the creatives will participate in open house demonstrations and public performances.

Because of the coronavirus, the events will be physically distanced from one another. Indoor locations will have staggered and open air.

“Over the past six years we have held an event around this time of year to highlight the creative process and the experimental nature of the Sou’wester Residency Program,” the lodge said in a statement. “Each year this event brings amazing artists to this neck of the woods and shines creative light into the darkest heart of winter.”

This year’s arts week theme is “reconvention, reunion and renewal.”

To apply, visit souwesterlodge.com before Jan. 8 at midnight. Accepted artists will be notified on Jan. 26. Applying artists should envision different avenues in which they can comfortably share their work.

A panel of jurors will select artists based on past work and future project proposals. About 60% of the selected artists will be returning artists.

Local residents will be able to tour the lodge to see the art installations during self-guided tours and by appointment. The event will also be available to view online.
