Creatives far and wide in pursuit of enlightenment are journeying to NG Art Creative, a multi-disciplinary artist residency in a 17th century Provençal olive mill, Moulin de Gréoux, Maussane, offering a dedicated residency program and gallery, nestled in the foothills of the glorious Alpilles mountains.
A home away from home, NG Art Creative is a not for profit international association offering a place of respite, nourishment and enlightenment for artists, writers, poets, musicians, performers, filmmakers, photographers, academic scholars, and other creatives who seek to enrich their process.
Residing alongside Nicky Ginsberg and her partner Edwin Holder-Vale, fellow artist, you will feast on home cooked fare and Provençal delicacies from dawn to dusk, sample some of the finest Côte de Provence Rosès of the region, and explore a backdrop of traditional gastronomy and long-celebrated tapestry of art and culture.
The picturesque and historical village of Maussane is located in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region, surrounded by the Alpilles mountains, Les Baux de Provence, St Remy de Provence, Eygaliéres, Arles and Mouriés. As one of the most important olive oil producing areas in all of France, olive groves and mills, vineyards and undulating countryside set the backdrop to this charming French village.
Explore the weekly farmers markets, learn the native tongue, steep yourself in French history, try your hand at traditional Provençal cooking, engage in philosophical enquiry, enjoy guided historical walking tours, bicycle expeditions through the countryside, and join fellow creatives and the local artist community at evening soirées, feasts for the senses and creative workshops.
NG Art Creative Residency is a retreat for creatives to create, paint, draw, sculpt, write, sing, rhyme, film, photograph, ponder life and collaborate, both in the studio and en plein air.
Open from February to November, NG Art Creative offers 3, 4, and 6 week residencies and caters for up to 6 creative residents. Creatives can apply by submitting a 600-word response to a number of criteria and providing an example of work.
