Artist in Residence 2020 at Orquevaux, France

I received the following letter from a prestigious Artist Residency in France! I would really love to go on this trip and spend my first month of the year in France creating art! In order to go I would love it if you can help me out by handing me your spare change. You guys have come through for me in the past and I always help you out when I can. If you can't give even as little as $1 or $2 then please at least like and share this so that other lovers of art and creatives minds can try to help me as well. :-)

Keep in mind I am adding just a little extra to help for transport to and from France, and transporting my work, as well as any transport within the country or trips to museums (Hopefully this time I can make it to the Louvre!!) I just rounded it up to $4,000 but will most likely need more that I will hopefully get through the sale of some art.

I need to have a deposit of $556.53 by August 10th to secure my spot.


Congratulations Cecelia Price!
We are excited that you will be joining us for 4 weeks as an Artist-in-Residence from 6th January to 3rd

Although not mandatory, in exchange for the
grant we hope that you will contribute one work of your choice to The Chateau d’Orquevaux Art Collection.
We will soon open an art gallery in the village and in time we hope to open a contemporary art museum
which will show the work of the residents.
Your residency includes a private bedroom, private studio and most meals.

The Pre-Grant cost of the residency is €4,800 and after The Denis Diderot [A-i-R] Grant is applied your actual
cost is €3,300. A deposit of €500 is needed no later than 10th August to ensure acceptance of your residency
