Artist Residency

Artist Residencies awarded to work on the Art and Agriculture Sustainability Project:
Residency time at these locations was spent interviewing local farmers. Personal art making involved painting, printmaking, installation pieces with agricultural materials, creating natural dyes and pigments from plant material, weaving, sewing, paper making, photography, cyanotype and writing. Two residencies were to prepare for a two gallery solo exhibit at Salem College, Winston-Salem, NC (Fall 2016 through January 2017).
