There are quite a number of them. The benefit is usually free room
and board and a token amount of pay, called a monthly stipend.

They can be 1 month, 2 months, 6 or 9 months.

There are really so many I can’t list them all.

There are some that are specifically for metalsmiths, and others
that are for “artists” that you could apply for if you could bring
your tools and do work that is artsy.

Find residencies in Art Calendar Magazine and

Hello

I am a current artist in residence in a small town in Iowa. Each
residency is different. In Omaha they give you a monthly stipend,
here I have studio time in exchange for managing the gallery a few
days a week and minimal rent for the apartment upstairs, others
charge you more, it depends on where you look. I think also that the
reasons for doing a residency position are different. I wanted to
establish my jewelry full time and needed a place to concentrate on
it where I didn’t have to take on a part time or full time job to
support myself. For others they might do a one month residency as a
working vacation. What are you looking for exactly? And do you know
where you want to go?

I’m not sure which resident artist program you’re looking for
about, but there’s a fairly new one in Washington, run by
Artsmith. Their website is www.orcasartsmith.org. The deadline for
this year’s program has passed, but there’s always next year…

The residency gives you a week in their beautiful Orcas Island B&B
with most meals included. It’s not specifically for jewelry or
metalsmith, so it may not be what you’re looking for.
