Open Residency Program

Applications are now open!

The Open Residency Program at Cow House Studios is intended to offer artists critically valuable time and space to think, research and make new work. The aim of this residency is to minimise distraction and ensure that momentum gained while working in the studio can be acted upon, helping to make even shorter stays highly productive.

Applications are open to both Irish and international cultural practitioners working in any discipline; visual artists, theatre-makers, writers, thinkers, choreographers, designers, performers, filmmakers, sculptors, photographers, etc. are all strongly encouraged to apply.

One Crazy Summer

Two days ago we said goodbye to the last of our wonderful students from Art on the Farm, 2014. We were truly fortunate to have such talented, engaged and thoughtful group of students for all three of our sessions.

Our last two weeks have been filled with activities too numerous to list, but a highlight would certainly include our trip to the west. We were lucky to get some pretty amazing weather […]

Final Photos from Session 1

We were treated to some wonderful paintings, drawings, photographs and even a few installations. We wish everyone the best for the rest of the summer, and […]

Art on the Farm 2011

It has been just one short week since our last session left the farm, and the place seems almost too quiet without all the busy activity in the studio. No more rummaging through the kitchen for a mid day or late night snack, or sounds of Lola barking for just one more stick to be […]

Underfloor Heating System Installed

We are happy to announce that over the past few weeks we have been busy installing underfloor heating in the studio. This new system provides a much more comfortable working environment in the Autumn, Winter and Spring for our resident artists and portfolio students. Underfloor heating ensures an efficient, ecologically sound method for heating such […]
