The Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists provides time for uninterrupted work in an inspiring and historic setting made unique by Brittany's extraordinary light, distinctive landscape, and rich cultural traditions. The program awards successful applicants with free housing and studio space in the village of Léhon. Residents are responsible for most meals and incidental expenses. MICA charges no fees for application to or participation in the Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists.
The selection committee and program directors seek four to eight artists whose mix of media, approaches, styles, and focus will create a dynamic and collegial community. In particular, we are looking for artists who can use the specific character of our residency experience productively. The setting is perfect, for example, for plein aire painters who will profit from their interaction with the light and landscape, but we encourage artists working in all media to submit applications that demonstrate how our residency will significantly enhance and strengthen their practice. The Residency is open to all practicing visual artists, regardless of affiliation or citizenship, who are not students at the time of application.
