Mackie Lake House Foundation

Artist in Residence

Prospectus for the Mackie Lake House Foundation
Artist-in-Residence Program 2018

The Mackie Lake House Foundation Artist-in-Residence Program is a collaborative partnership between Mackie Lake House Foundation and Vernon Public Art Gallery (VPAG). The Artist-in-Residence Program is made possible through the generosity of Patrick (Paddy) Fylton Mackie who established and funded the Mackie Lake House Foundation. Patrick Mackie was a patron of the arts and a gifted artist in his own right and the Artist-in-Residence Program was established in his memory.

The purpose of the Artist-in-Residence program is to foster the discourse and production of visual arts by providing artists a place to pursue their artistic discipline in a tranquil location away from their normal busy life.  One work of art inspired by the location and produced during the Residency will be donated to the Foundation to be displayed in the House. The artist will grant rights for the image to be reproduced as cards or small prints with full credit given to the artist. 

We are pleased to announce the call to the artists for the 2018 Mackie Lake House Artist-in-Residence program. The residency is designed to offer established Canadian artists solitude and time to create. The residency includes a three-week stay at the Historic 1910 Mackie Lake House in Coldstream, BC, a $1000 honorarium, and an exhibition October 11-December 19, 2018 at the Vernon Public Art Gallery. The exhibition will include working sketches and finished works produced during the residency.

Submission Guidelines

While the intent of the Artist-in-Residence program is to offer the artist an opportunity to work on their artistic projects, it is expected that the artist will be available to talk to local media, participate in the Vernon Public Art Gallery Show opening on Thursday October 11, 2018 and give an Artist Talk at the Vernon Public Art Gallery on Saturday October 13, 2018

Artists are responsible for their own transportation, food, communications and supplies while staying at Mackie Lake House, and they are also responsible for pick-up of work, or arrange the shipping of works after the completion of the exhibition at the VPAG. The honorarium will be given as $500 at the beginning of the residency and the balance upon the completion of the residency

Mackie Lake House is located on the shores of Kalamalka Lake in Coldstream, BC, a rural community near Vernon in the North Okanagan Valley.  The house was built circa 1910 and is one of the finest surviving examples of Arts & Crafts style architecture in the Interior of BC.  In 1987 the House was recognized as a Provincial Heritage Site and is listed as one of Canada’s Historic Places.  The House is now used for a wide variety of cultural and community events.
