The CO. Artist Residency

We offer local residences for beginning to mid-career artists.

Artists in Residence

The CO. Artist in Residence Program supports local beginning to mid-career artists who have had a lived experience with mental health. The residency provides a supportive and non-judgemental space for self-directed production of new work, working towards a final show. Annually, the CO invites two local artists. The residency is an opportunity to work within a creative environment, work in partnership with community organizations and it includes studio space and equipment. Please inquire about our residency and the requirements at

This year's featured artist: Lauren Graham

Lauren is a mixed media artist mainly working with acrylic, oil pastels, graphite, and ink. Emotional expression, spirituality, and interpersonal connections are the heart of her artistic identity. Playing with themes of decay; life within death, art formed into her passion, aiding in her journey to share her truth in ways words could not express.
