I finally know what I'll be doing this summer! Usually I nail down artist residency plans much earlier in the year, but it's been much more up in the air this time around. Until now!
I am extremely pleased to announce that I was fortunate enough to be selected for one of the two spots allocated to international artists to attend a fully sponsored two-week-long residency at Cerdeira Village in Portugal in association with the 2017 "Bichos" themed Elementos à Solta (Art Meets Nature) festival. I will be working in ceramics with 3P QuickCure Clay both in the preceding days and as well as actively at the festival.
I am also very happy to share that I have additionally been chosen to attend a two-month-long residency at Intercambiador ACART in Madrid, Spain. I previously studied abroad in Madrid in 2007, so it's been a decade since I've last lived there. It will be nice to return as a more well-traveled and seasoned adult. I will probably be working with a mix of 2D and 3D aspects.
I will do the two back-to-back, starting with Cerdeira Village and then heading to Intercambiador ACART. It will be a very busy, very productive summer!
