Artists in Residence
A list of the current and upcoming artists in residence.
It was with deep regret that we made the difficult decision to end our residency program for the near future. This has meant sending the nine artists of Residency #44 home a week early. We also cancelled the upcoming April 6 - May 8 residency. We will make a decision as to the cancellation of future residencies and will notify the artists first and then update our website and social media. We greatly appreciate the artists’ understanding that these decisions were the responsible choice to make for our local and global community and those most at risk. Take care!
