Since the opening of the Gushul Studio and Writer's Cottage in 1988, a wide variety of artists have participated in one- to three-month residencies. Some of the artists that have called the Gushul home have included:
Previous residents Kelaine Devine and Christopher Moore (August 2010) chronicled their experiences of their time at the Gushul and exploring the Crowsnest Pass area in a blog – http://myblairmore.com.
As of May 2012, Kelaine is currently pursuing her MA in Multidisciplinary studies at the University of Lethbridge. Christopher's current work can be found through his website - www.disintermediator.com.

Previous residents Jennifer Akkermans and Latifa Pelletier-Ahmed (September 2011) immersed themselves in their workspace as well as the community, history, and wilderness of the Crowsnest Pass. Their blog - http://gushul2011.wordpress.com/ - records a positive, productive experience at the Gushul, as well as their collaborative and independent work.

Previous residents Mark Prier and Jennifer Tellier (July 2012) blogged their time in the Gushul Studio at The Wanderings of Mark Prier + Jennifer Tellier.

Previous resident Paddy Lamb (May 2013) wrote of his stay at the Gushul studio with a focus on the unique routine of living in a creative space, as well as escaping into the surrounding communities to refresh the mind. Photographs of the space at the studio can be found along with written reflections at The Thomas Gushul Residency May 2013 page of Paddy's website.
