As a result of the global pandemic, Maelor is now only accepting groups of two or more (up to six) who are part of social bubbles for the foreseeable future. Artists are able to apply now and approximate dates will be agreed which can be changed depending on both the global and local situations.

Donated art work will still be up for sale and if the work is sold, artists, whose work is sold, will be able to come to Maelor when Maelor reopens again. Maelor will be listing work donated by artists on Facebook, Instagram and on the Maelor Stores page. Please support Maelor and artists by purchasing artwork and keeping in touch.  

OPEN CALL for Stiwdio Maelor’s annual competition 2021.  We are open to accepting all media. The deadline is 19th July 2021. Head to our competition page to find out some more details! 

Stiwdio Maelor was established in July 2014 by Australian artist Veronica Calarco to provide residency opportunities for artists and writers from the UK and other parts of the world.

Stiwdio Maelor offers selected artists and writers time and space out of their normal life to focus on the development of their work and explore the beautiful landscape of mid Wales. Residencies provide artists and writers the experience of working alongside other artists of different disciplines and at different stages in their careers.

As an independent, self-funded project, Stiwdio Maelor seeks to operate ecologically and sustainably on a not for profit basis. To this end, resident artists pay a contribution towards their accommodation and are requested to be as respectful of the environment as possible whilst at Maelor.

Artists often donate saleable works, which when sold provide funds to support a return visit by the artist at a future date.

As the support for Stiwdio Maelor grows, we hope to expand its opportunities and programs.

Donate: If you wish to donate to enable Maelor to continue to grow and support artists from all over the world – email stiwdiomaelor@gmail.com. Or you can support us in developing the Friends of Maelor initiative. An example of a reward we are offering when you become a Friend is discount on entry fees to competitions, bursaries etc. There are also other rewards and we hope to develop more in the future.

NON-DISCRIMINATION Policy: Stiwdio Maelor encourages applications from artists of all backgrounds and does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, national origin, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, HIV status or marital status – so we don’t discriminate but sadly the building has lots of steep stairs and no money to solve it and so people who can’t do stairs sadly can’t come.
