The Martyn House Farm

Name of Residency: Antonelli

Our Artist Residency Program is designed to enable creative exploration, concentrated work, and artistic exchange in an inspiring and supportive environment. The Martyn House Farm is an 18 acre homestead in North Georgia and the Ellijay Coffeehouse is located in historic downtown Ellijay just 2 miles from the farm. Both the farm and coffeehouse have artistically crafted and unique living and studio spaces where we offer the perfect extended-stay getaway to reflect, create, and explore.

Time spans are individually based &ndash 2 weeks(950) or 1 month (1800), accommodating 5 artists at a time. The fee includes all utilities, private accommodation w/kitchenettes, private bath, studio space, wireless internet and access to a laundry room.
