The unit Casa del Dragon in Cervera del Maestre – artist residence, exhibition space, working space, think tank – invites artists from all over the world to live, work and exhibit together in the Maestrazgo region (near Vinaros, Peñiscola, Sant Mateo, Morella) in Spain.
The 700 years old stone house in the village of Cervera del Maestre is an open art project. More than 100 artists passed the location between 2007 and 2012. The house offers up to 11 places for residency. The artists live together with some members of the community in a familiar enviroment. The target is to develop friendship, cultural activities and explore new creative ways to distribute European art in the world. The guests prepare the meals, clean and organize the daily life together with the members of familiafeliz. They are free to relax or work, to discover the region or help in our local art projects.
The house of the dragon brings creative people together. You can be part of this think tank, if you are professional artist, curator, art agent, gallerist, art historian, a journalist, poet, dancer… or if you like to help with your fundamental business or handcraft knowledge (like a business angel) to develop new emerging art projects. The residence is supported by private sponsorship. This helps a lot to organize events and take care of the facilities and space.
The house was rebuilt with the help of many friends and artists over more than 28 years. It is used since 2006 as an open exhibition space.
The focus of the residence is European art, this is art from all European members, whereever they are living and working, and form any artist working in Europe. So definetly this residence welcomes artists from Asia, Amerika and other continents to participate in an open dialog to explore new amazing art.
Since the summer of 2014 the residence collaborates with the UNESCO project sevengardens.org and organizes workshops for dye gardening and working with natural pigments.
