About Red Clay

Red Clay is an art space and organic farm overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Located in rural Nova Scotia, far enough from the urban buzz to allow artists to feel a connection, even if momentarily, with the land, the forest and the coast, the facility hosts a program of workshops  and self-directed residencies throughout the year.

Red Clay is a mosiac of gardens, fires, strawberries, blackberries, early morning swims in the pond and the White Rabbit residency and festival. The Upper Bay of Fundy is warm during the summer months and walking on the tidal flats is an amazing adventure… or swimming, best on the incoming tide.  

In 2019 Red Clay is hosting micro-residencies in July and September as well as interdisciplinary White Rabbit residency in August.

Red Clay micro-residencies

Micro-residencies are 6-day self-directed residencies where artists are given the opportunity to work within a specific discipline. We support one senior artist during the residency who we feel has done significant work in the chosen discipline.  Participating artists do their own work, collectively prepare meals and have an opportunity to discuss and share each evening with the senior artist and each other. Accommodation in tiny cabins, greenhouse lofts or bunks in the main house are included. Participants also have the opportunity to opt into our CSA organic garden vegetable program during the residency.

Dates and topics for Red Clay residencies will be posted soon

White Rabbit

White Rabbit is an interdisciplinary residency in mid-August. Artists have the opportunity to camp or stay in one of the Red Clay tiny cabins or a greenhouse loft. White Rabbit is an all inclusive residency with farm to table gourmet meals and where artists are supported by a mentor artist and have access to technical support. The residency culminates with the White Rabbit exhibit and celebration. Applications are jury reviewed.
