Cow House Studios award four, ten week residencies annually. Applications are open to Irish and international artists. In collaboration with the Wexford Arts Centre and Monster Truck Gallery & Studios, all four artists will exhibit in a group show traveling to both exhibition spaces the following Autumn.
