Loghaven Artist Residency supports emerging and established artists working in the fields of writing, visual art, music composition, dance, theater, architecture, and interdisciplinary work, for two to six-week residencies. Our goal is to provide artists with the highest level of suppoth during and after thein residence.


Loghaven’s historic cabins and ninety acres of surrounding woodlands have been thoughtfully preserved and renovated as an artist residency. The original log cabins on the property were built during the Depression and are used as artists’ living spaces during their time in residence. Many of the cabins are ample in size, allowing for both live and work spaces and making them ideal for hosting collaborative artist groups. In addition to the Depression-era cabins, there are three newly constructed buildings on the campus, the communal McDonough House, Performing Arts Studio, and Visual Arts Studio.

For over eighty years, this cabin community has been home to creatives, intellectuals, and entrepreneurs seeking inspiration in a beautiful setting. Loghaven Artist Residency continues and expands upon the tradition of creativity on this wooded ridge-top just ten minutes from downtown Knoxville.


Loghaven’s annual open call for applications takes place on June 1 through July 15, for residencies occurring the following year. Practicing artists of all backgrounds and at any stage of their career are eligible to apply for a Loghaven residency. The chief criteria for selection are artistic excellence and creative potential. International artists and artists currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program are not eligible. Artists must be at least twenty-one years old and live more than 120 miles away from Knoxville, TN.


Loghaven is dedicated to providing all residents with a transformative and supportive retreat experience. To us, this means not only providing time and space in an inspiring setting; it also means financial support. As part of the residency, artists receive a living stipend of $850 per week and travel and freight reimbursement.

Loghaven provides residents with weekday lunches and dinners in the McDonough House. In addition, residents are able to place a weekly grocery order provided by the residency to cover the remaining meals.
