Happy Year of the Rooster at Rice Valley Projects.

Here is some feedback from artist residents we received in 2016...

"It was the perfect place here for reflecting on our project and getting truly in touch with our directions...I hope to come again!"...

"Well yes a lucky guess and the perfect place for us...It is funny how sometimes things fit so well with your needs and what you are looking for."....

"We found here many inspirations for the next years to come but mostly we found inspiring artists and inspiring human beings. Thank you for your time, your flexibility and your advice."...

"This experience was a unique turning point for us!"...

We are looking forward to new residents and experiences in 2017.
