Women’s Studio Workshop (WSW) announces a call for artists for the Tatana Kellner Artist Residency: Mapping Our Lives in These Dystopian Times, a six day intensive and inspiring studio experience.
Deadline: 15 Apr 2017
Take a cue from the residency location in Scotland, spend the week mapping new work in response to the immediate environment. Inspiration will be both the natural and the social world surrounding us. Through a series of guided exercises, examine the path taken by artists navigating in the contemporary world. Combine printmaking, drawing, photography, text, and collage techniques. Students will create a series of individual but related works or a one-of-a-kind artist’s book. Basic bookbinding concepts and binding techniques will be covered.
Tatana Kellner, WSW’s founding Artistic Director, has been printing, assembling images, and making artists’ books for over 35 years. Susan Fateh, our international program coordinator, has found excellent studios at the Findhorn Foundation. Stay in lovely guesthouses a short walk from the spacious studios. Findhorn is an intentional eco-community, one of the first in the world and was a model for the Omega Institute.
Work in Findhorn’s Moray Art Centre which features bright, airy, and spacious studios. Each student will have a large work table for spreading out as they work. Lunch will be served in the lounge area of the Art Centre. Vegan, vegetarian, and/or gluten free dinners will be served in a private dining room within the Findhorn campus.
About Women’s Studio Workshop
Women’s Studio Workshop envisions a society where women’s visual art is integral to the cultural mainstream and permanently recorded in history. Their mission is to operate and maintain an artists’ workspace which encourages the voice and vision of individual women artists; provides professional opportunities for artists at various stages of their careers; and promotes programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.
Women’s Studio Workshop maintains facilities for etching, letterpress, papermaking, book arts, silkscreen, 3D work, ceramics, and photography. Studios are housed in an historic building located in the foothills of the Hudson Valley’s Shawangunk Mountains. The studios are extensively equipped and well-maintained. Artists can take workshops, rent the studios, or schedule private instruction. Women-identified visual artists may apply for artist residencies.
