This January, Goldmoor Inn introduces it's first Artist in Residence program, inviting guests to join four gifted painters who will claim residence for one week each during January, 2017. During the first-ever program, guests are invited to immerse themselves in creativity with classes offered each weekend and interactions with artists during the week. Guests and restaurant patrons are then invited to a complimentary artist’s reception on Saturday evenings. Those who register for classes and add overnight stays earn a twenty percent reduction in room rate at the luxury destination situated high above the Mississippi River, complete with individually-decorated suites, cottages and log cabins and a gourmet restaurant.
Four accomplished artists were selected from an impressive list of applicants and they will travel from four cities and three states to focus their creative energy on capturing the new landscapes and scenes surrounding the 21-acre estate. Each will work in her chosen medium either indoors or outdoors weather permitting, while greeting guests throughout the day. Every Saturday, the featured artists will teach a private class for 8-10 participants, exploring a spectrum of methods -- from watercolor to plein air painting with oils to pastels. Classes are appropriate for all skill levels. Each artist’s residency concludes with a complimentary Champagne Reception where she will display works created that week.
During the Artist in Residence program, those who register for at least one art class and stay two nights receive a 20 percent reduction in the overnight accommodations price. This offer may not be combined with others.
