Face coverings or masks, and social distancing from other visitors and staff are recommended.

This month’s presenters include: Daniel Pearce, San Francisco, CA; A fiction writer, Daniel’s novel-in-progress focuses on issues of criminal justice, academic fraud, and mental illness. Carla Diaz, Nashville, TN; A novelist, with a background in theater, Carla approaches fiction with an interest in voice, and enjoys using humor as a lens to explore difficult emotional territory. Natalya Kochak, Miami Beach, FL; A painter and mixed media artist, Natalya hopes to provide not only beauty to a community, with her artwork, but a viewpoint that can broaden minds and create actual change.

The Jentel Foundation offers dedicated individuals a supportive environment in which to further their creative development. While at Jentel, visual artists and writers have the opportunity to experience unfettered time to allow for thoughtful reflection and meditation on the creative process in a setting that preserves the agricultural and historical integrity of the land.

The Jentel Artist Residency Program accepts applications twice a year from visual artists in all media and writers in all genres for a one-month residency. A residency includes a comfortable accommodation; common living, dining, and recreation areas; a private workspace and a stipend to help defray expenses during the program.
