TORONTO, July 4, 2022 /CNW/ – The Ontario Heritage Trust is now accepting applications to the Doris McCarthy Artist-in-Residence Program. Residencies are available throughout 2023, with flexible terms ranging from one to three months. The application deadline is September 30, 2022.
The residency program is open to professional Canadian artists practising a wide array of disciplines. Selected artists will live and create in the inspiring natural setting of the Doris McCarthy Artist-in-Residence Centre at Fool’s Paradise, the former home and studio of celebrated Canadian landscape artist Doris McCarthy.
Located on the Scarborough Bluffs in Toronto, Fool’s Paradise offers a tranquil environment for artists looking to escape, re-energize and focus on their art. Wishing for other artists and creators to experience the same inspiring views that fostered so much of her own artistic expression, McCarthy donated her home to the Ontario Heritage Trust in 1998 with the intention of turning it into an artist-in-residence centre. The Trust launched the program in 2015 and has since welcomed 49 artists from across Canada to McCarthy’s home.
