Do you ever want to get away from it all so you can paint a masterpiece? Write a song? Take pictures?
Are you looking for the functionality of an easel in a place that will inspire you?
The real world can affect your art in a negative way, and sometimes it’s important to get away for a few days (or weeks) to really concentrate on your creative process. Artists’ retreats are a popular way for you to get a fresh dose of inspiration and have lots of quality time to work, without all of the distractions of everyday life.
We have created a space just for you!
It's quiet, quaint, a little tucked away. You can shut out the world for a while. This is all about you and what you want to create.
Enjoy the comfort and style of True North decorating in your cozy apartment/studio. Plenty of light and easel space, and access to coffee shops, restaurants, or a little shopping.
If you want to, you can easily venture into Calgary, High River, or Lethbridge. Nestled in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, we are located in Nanton, Alberta and ideally situated for an artist's getaway. A historic town, Nanton seems a world apart from the big city life of Calgary. But big-city amenities are only 40 minutes away!
International artists will be impressed with the surrounding spectacular Alberta landscape of meadows and woodlands, rocky ravines, and rivers, certain to inspire the soul of the artist. Nanton itself is small, friendly, and self-sufficient. You can enjoy the anonymity, or hunker down and enjoy our Western-style hospitality. The choice is yours.
Artist retreats are the latest trend in global Air BnB's and the trend is growing! Don't miss out on this opportunity to free your artistic spirit to flow into all aspects of your life!
This is for you! You deserve this!
How does the Artists' Inn Residence work?
You will arrive at our destination and have a comfortable and fully equipped apartment/studio consisting of a luxury bedroom, bathroom, studio with easel and ample light, WIFI, cable TV, fresh linens. Local restaurants will deliver meals, or you can enjoy dining at several local restaurants. A small 'efficiency' kitchen takes care of morning coffee, snacks, etc.
You may have access to our store-front gallery to hang any art you created that you want to showcase. You will have a pre-determined time frame to work on your art. 7-day and 14-day retreats are popular.
During your stay, or afterward, our team will work with you to coordinate and promote a solo art show if desired, including local media promotion. Also, we can sell, promote and ship your work from our gallery after it sells. Standard gallery commissions apply.
Social Media Exposure
In addition to a solo art show, we can include your artwork in our online gallery and all of our social media: Facebook, TicToc, Twitter, and Instagram.
Guests must complete an online form and a letter of intent to qualify.
We maintain strict confidentiality and anonymity for the artist.
