Aeolian Acres is As an extension of Elsewhere's usual artist residency program, we are happy to partner with aeolian acres -- a space with its own unique and welcoming vibe. It is located off Hwy 133 between Paonia and Hotchkiss and provides more of a retreat style residency. It is a special opportunity that is separate from Elsewhere Studios' normal programming. Artists-in-residence at aeolian have the option to participate in community events at Elsewhere Studios in town, share communal dinners, or have exhibitions, but can also choose to create their own solitary residency.
We welcome visual artists, writers, composer/musicians, performance artists at any stage of their careers as well as scientists, activists, teachers, students, or any kind of creative thinker interested in exploring and expanding their work in a unique and supportive environment. Elsewhere is a choose-your-own-adventure style residency. Situated in downtown Paonia, the spaces are versatile, providing residents with opportunities to connect and interact with other artists in the community, to create or participate in art exhibitions, and to teach classes or workshops.
We have two community events per month: a "Meet-n-Greet" style event at the beginning of the month where artists present their past work / intended project at Elsewhere to community members of Paonia in order to introduce them to the community and vice versa. At the end of the month we host a "Open Studio" which can be exhibition, performances, readings, anything really!
While at Elsewhere, we offer artists one of the most valuable tools: time, and artists have the freedom to spend it how they wish.
