Our Story

The Sojourn Studio (then called the Aurora Residency) was started by Jennifer Fox and Taylor Brown in 2013. The current directors are Jack Weidman and Micah Squires.  The Sojourn Collective invites Houston area artists to participate in the Sojourn Studio program. All selected artists are provided with a $250 stipend and space to create an installation or series of work over the course of three months. We host two artist per three months, totaling four artists per six months. We put on and promote a semi annual exhibition featuring all four artists at Sojourn Montrose off of Westheimer, with all profits from work sold going towards the artists. This residency is open to all artists, not just visual artists! 

The studio is hosted at 1846 Westheimer Rd. 

The Sojourn Residency also hosts selected artist solo and group exhibitions, as well as on-going community events. If you are interested in using our facilities please contact us!
