Here you can sit on a bench gazing over the fields and the sea, walk through the hilly landscapes, or go down to the rocky beach for a swim. You can paint or write in the old stone house in the garden, or read a book by the fireplace in the library.
The Alberses both believed that living in a simple, functional manner was the best base for making art. We would like to offer visiting artists a similar kind of serenity, by providing a simple, beautiful environment in which artists can work without the usual distractions of their own home and everyday environment. We invite the artists to enjoy the landscape, read in the library, cook in the large kitchen, and perhaps even have the experience of boredom. We believe that the change of scenery, and the vacation from habitual activities, will translate into the thinking and into the work, so that new perspectives naturally arise—thoughts and connections that could never have been imagined, or prepared conceptually, in advance.
We have space for one or two artists working on small or large scale projects, with each enjoying the serenity of a separate, private bedroom and a private bathroom.
There is a large shared kitchen, a library, and a nice garden. The residency is located in an old farm house, and the residents are free to create their own work spaces in the rooms, or in the separate stone house in the garden.
We are currently developing the library which will includes, among other books, works by and about the previous owner of the house, the American scholar and psychologist Jerome Bruner.
