Three artists with significant ties to Maine have been selected as the 2015 recipients of the Monhegan Artists’ residency: Coreena Affleck (Yarmouth), Justin Richel (Rangeley), and Nathaniel Meyer (South Portland). Affleck and Richel will benefit from five‐week sojourns on Monhegan Island, and Meyer has been awarded the two-week residency for Maine K–12 art teachers, which was added to the program three years ago.

This year marked the first time that the Monhegan Artists’ Residency (MARC) was opened up to artists at all career levels, which brought in a 30 percent increase in applications.

The Residency supports the creative growth of dedicated Maine artists working in all media by providing them with time and space in which to work free of interruption and constraint
