Save March 12-19, 2023 as the date for our 4th Annual ARTS WEEK! During this time The Sou’wester will host 30-35 artists and art collectives for a week of residency work, music, performances and installations.

Over the past 9 years we have held an event around this time of year to highlight the creative process and the experiential nature of the Sou’wester Residency Program. Each year this event brings amazing artists to this neck of the woods and shines creative light into the darkest heart of winter.

Artists Apply Here

(The Sou’wester has regular residencies offered year-round in addition to residency events such as the annual ARTS WEEK. Applications for the Sou’wester Standard Residency are separate from ARTS WEEK and accepted on a rolling basis.)

The focus of the 4nd Annual ARTS WEEK is Shifting Cycles:

“Our reliance on a known occurrence has been disrupted. This shift is replacing existing patterns and problems. Collective action and individual insight paving our path forward.”





On the weekend Friday and Saturday March 17th and 18th, 2023 the public will be invited to tour the grounds and surrounding areas for a weekend full of installations, music, performances and open studios.
