I was recently selected as one of the new resident artists at the Arlington Arts Center. The program includes a physical studio space at the AAC in Arlington (across the street from the Virginia Square metro station on the orange line). Here’s a description from the AAC website:
“The primary goal of the Artist Residency Program is to provide a space in which artists can work and grow, and to bring them together with the community in an environment that encourages interaction, dialogue, and exploration. Selection criteria include artistic merit, commitment to professional development, potential for collaborative outreach to the community, and diversity of artist representation.”
I’m super excited because this is the first time that I’ve had a studio space. My work, and the work of the eight other new resident artists, will be featured in the Wyatt Gallery in a show opening this Friday February 4th. We’re also holding open studio hours during the opening reception so it should be exciting!
