The Watershed Residency provides artists, craftspeople, and other professionals with the time and space to explore the Upper Arkansas River Valley. Residents are offered work and exhibit space in our historic Main Street building, and a choice of accommodations in a Leadville (former) miner’s house or a Lance four-season recreational vehicle. In exchange, residents are asked to create a specific project to showcase this distinctive region. Residents may also lead workshops to share their talents and/or skills. Interested individuals, couples, or groups are encouraged contact us with a very brief proposal. We are open to all ideas, for periods ranging from 3 days to 3 weeks.
Featured Artists Program
Are you looking for a space or gallery to display your artwork? Watershed is looking to partner with local artists to display artwork on our walls. For only $50/month, you are able to display and sell your artwork throughout Watershed. We encourage artists to provide information about each piece of artwork with a price for purchase. Artists can provide informational brochures to display in our Storefront as well. Watershed collects payments in the form of cash, check, or credit card, and passes along 75% of commission to the artist after the gallery period ends.
