Artists in Residence

We offer a unique residency experience here at The Peanut Factory. Artists and writers can work, create an installation, and lead a workshop in a 1932 peanut processing mill which has been partially refurbished, leaving space for expression while maintaining the building’s integrity.

The Spruill Farm Conservation Farm, which is located 25 minutes away in Roper, Washington County, was added to The Peanut Factory, Inc. late in 2023.  Your residency may include research at the 110 acre farm, with trails and shoreline, where citizen scientists and university researchers are also invited to work. 

The Artists in Residency program accepts applications on a rolling basis. Feel free to introduce yourself with any links of your work – visual arts or other fields – and explain your interests and goals. We will respond as soon as possible with further details about the residency.
