The Hambidge Center
Margaret Fletcher is a Fellow of the Hambidge Center. Hambidge provides a residency program that empowers talented individuals to explore, develop, and express their creative voices. Situated on 600 acres in the mountains of north Georgia, Hambidge is a sanctuary of time and space that inspires individuals working in a broad range of disciplines to create works of the highest caliber. As one of the first artist communities in the U.S., the Hambidge Center has a distinguished history of supporting individual artists in a residency program. The Center also continues to act as a steward of its extraordinary 600-acre setting in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The Center was created in 1934 by Mary Hambidge, who established the artist enclave and sustainable farm in memory of her artist partner, Jay Hambidge (1867–1924). After a brief career as a performer on vaudeville stages (Mary was a world-class whistler who appeared with her pet mockingbird Jimmy), she discovered weaving and eventually found her home among Appalachian weavers in the North Georgia mountains.

Over the past century, the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture (APLA) has grown to include three allied degree programs: architecture, interior architecture, and landscape architecture.

Atlanta Contemporary art center
Margaret Fletcher was a resident artist at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center from 2009 to 2011.
“The program seeks to provide local artists the opportunity to create in a setting that supports their artistic development and provides them with the resources necessary to advance their careers.
Emerging, mid-career, and established Atlanta-based artists are invited to apply through an open call process; a panel of current board members, staff, and representatives from the Atlanta art community review the applications. Selection criteria include consistency with the institutional focus on contemporary art, level of activity as a working artist, and history of community involvement.” (source: www.atlantacomtemporary.org)
