Cycling Salamander Artist Residency
Cycling Salamander periodically offers artist residencies for fine artists, craftsmen/women and musicians during the summer. This residency comes with house sitting responsibilities.

The gallery is located on 6 acres which includes a pond, meditation house,
woods and gardens.  Guests are invited to stroll our 1/4 mile path during
their visit.  The atmosphere provides the resident artist with plenty
of material and inspiration to draw upon.

Enjoy the tranquil setting provided by Cycling Salamander. 

Three days of this residency include house sitting and gallery responsibilities. The other three days, artists are required to demonstrate their craft and greet gallery customers for four hours a day (11-3pm). This leaves plenty of time for artists to practice their craft without interruption at the gallery or visit the many local attractions.  We'll share with you our favorite beaches, hiking trails, and local specialties.
