Artist in Residence
An artist residency is a program that invites artists to work on location for a set period -- this could be a gallery, horse show, or private venue. It provides artists with dedicated time and space to focus on their creative practice, explore new ideas, and produce artwork.
During an artist residency, I enjoy painting live for others to watch, ask questions, and be inspired by the creative process. In addition to being a form of entertainment and inspiration, my resulting artwork may also reflect the venue's context and values. In some cases, hosting an open studio, booth, or exhibition allows the attendees to engage with the residency, creating a sense of community and enhancing the venue's relationship with its audience.
