Boom Gallery, a fine arts venue and alternative space in Cincinnati, Ohio, has introduced their fellowship and summer residency program this year, and Elise Thompson will be the first recipient of this award. Elise Thompson is an MFA in Studio Art – Class of 2016.
The Boom Gallery Fellowship is a nonprofit program that is a hybrid art residency/curatorial community engagement program. Boom Gallery invites artists from around the world to create work and assist with the curation and execution of one group exhibition, within a vibrant and growing arts community in the Queen City of Cincinnati, Ohio for a period of six weeks. Elise will be co-curating a two person painting exhibition with local Cincinnati artist Nate Weikert exploring the casual and humble nature their works seem to embody through materials and display.
