Support McColl Center Future Artist-in-Residencies. (3.23.19)

If you follow my work, you know I love artist residencies. They’re great for many reasons.

From time/space to create new work, to taking experimental risks, collaborating with others… plus there is the professional endorsement/reputation that comes with the AiR. (A wide variety of different types, locations, focuses, and lengths of AiRs means we, artists, can apply for AiR fitting to our particular skills, goals, etc:)

I’ve been blessed to be a McColl Center for Art + Innovation AiR twice! Back in 2010, the work I did while at MCAI led to my glass journey that started the following year. Now, as the 2019 Atrium Health Artist-in-Residence at McColl Center for Art + Innovation, I’m able to paint abstract water again (started in 2018 at The Hambidge Center) and I get to continue working with my water glass.

The studios (with 24 hours access) at MCAI are incredible, with plenty of room to have multiple works happening at all times. The staff are very supportive and encouraging. I’m there with some amazing artists! The cherry on top is this is paid AiR! (Majority of AiRs are subsidized, but often the artist has to pay for something. This is my first paid one:)

Want to support MCAI? Support living artists making work now? And, have a fabulous time at a funky, fun, and always memorable party? Come join us on April 5!! 🥂💦😎

I'll have special hors d'oeuvres & adult beverages in my studio... plus some brand new work. (Please note that this is a ticketed, private event and one of the BIG fundraisers of the year... to support future artists and work in our community:)
