La Porte Peinte Art and Writing Residency

September 26, 2023 - October 22, 2023

Kerry is returning to Noyers sur Serein for a few weeks in fall 2023. After a rough year, she’s looking forward to returning to the place that feels like… the penultimate getaway to write/paint/draw and reset all the noise. The BEST company, lovely setting, yummy food, cats(!), and the most magical directrice await! Artists and writers, if you’re looking for a great residency, check it out! <3


“La Porte Peinte is first and foremost a residency centre, a haven and sanctuary for creative work. A residency here is designed to enable creative exploration, concentrated work and exchange in an inspiring and supportive environment.

La Porte Peinte USA, as a non-profit branch of the larger LPP project, aims to widen the field of opportunity to increase diversity, with a focus on individuals or groups who might otherwise lack access to such resources, e.g., artists affected by war, natural disasters, economic hardship or any form of discrimination. LPP USA aims to actively seek out such artists wherever in the world they may be, and to extend support to them through residencies, masterclasses, collaborations, or exhibitions. Areas of specific focus include film, photographic and written reportage that promotes global awareness and understanding; applied art that brings traditional techniques together with contemporary concerns, materials and methods; sustainable design; creative work by women; emerging artists of all ages; and African, Haitian, and Latin American practitioners, among others.

If an artist in residence wishes to learn about traditional materials and methods of art or craft, or to collaborate with an artist or maker from the local community, we will make introductions and facilitate arrangements. If an artist requires only solitude and optimal working conditions, we provide both.

In addition to the opportunity to work with total focus on individual creative practice, an important feature of our programme is the chance to connect with the local community via our gallery, workshops, events, and tea room. Where appropriate for an individual’s practice and project, we can sponsor in situ shows and events.

For emerging artists, the opportunity to engage in the complete artistic life cycle of concept > production > presentation > sale via a show in the gallery is one that can be both motivating and inspiring. Beyond this, an essential aim at LPP is to generate creative community, one intrinsically planted within the dynamic community of the modern-medieval village of Noyers sur Serein, which itself sits harmoniously in the pastoral landscape of northern Burgundy.

We welcome artists, performers, writers, musicians, filmmakers, photographers, and creative thinkers. Collaborative groups and partnerships are welcome to apply. Our physical resources include private studios appropriate for painting or sculpture, outdoor covered spaces, and several small indoor spaces that lend themselves to writing. We have a simple analog photography darkroom. For those who wish to explore locally available materials and technologies, these resources include limestone and lime plaster, iron, pigments, clays from the Puisaye area, and oak.”
