Artist Residencies... a Game Changer (12.15.18)
What a year. After a slow business of art season, things are turning around!
This year, I was awarded two fantastic residencies.
First, next month I’m the 2019 Atrium Health Artist-in-Residence at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, NC. So incredible for many reasons. (More about this later. See my studio at McColl Center at end of this post.)
Mark your calendar for the MCAI Open House/Opening Reception on Thursday, January 24 from 6–9 pm. In addition to celebrating the opening of the exhibition, the public is invited to meet the Artists-in-Residence in their studios. (I’ll be there.)
That is where my first water glass — inspired by The Hambidge Center residency can be seen. Water in nature and now, lots of greens throughout my water works.
Completely changing to glass in late 2011 has been a long, expensive, and time consuming process. As incredibly rewarding as it’s been, I have been in need of a recharge. Time with water in nature. Space to exhale.
I got it earlier this year:) My late August residency at The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts & Sciences changed the direction of art I’m creating about water.
