Osage Arts Community is a residency program that provides temporary time, space, and support for the creation of new work in a retreat format. These creative residencies are generally anywhere from one week to one year but average around six months. OAC serves creative people of all kinds – visual artists, video artists, composers, textile artists, ceramicists, poets, fiction and nonfiction writers.
OAC is located on a 160-acre farm in an isolated rural mountainside setting in Central Missouri bordered by ¾ of a mile of the Gasconade River. We provide a solitary retreat to those working alone, as well as welcoming collaborative teams, offering a living space and a country environment, in addition to workspace, to emerging and mid-career artists.
We are committed to a unified belief in the creative process, and we support this by offering dedicated time and space for the creation of new work.”
