|FSU Art MFA ’15 Haley Lauw has been invited to attend the Wassaic Artist Residency this July to create new bodies of print and sculptural works. The Wassaic Artist Residency is located two hours north of New York City and provides romantic, historic buildings amidst a serene, farmland landscape. Wassaic is highly competitive, has been featured in the New York Times, and promotes interdisciplinary, contemporary arts through community engagement. During her July residency at Wassaic, Haley will meet artists from all over the country and participate in studio visits with curators and collectors from New York and beyond. Haley has launched an Indiegogo campaign in order to help offset costs associated with travel and shipment of tools and materials!

FSU Art MFA Alum and Instructor Amy Fleming is working to fund an ongoing project, “The Other End of the Canon,” through the arts crowdfunding platform Hatchfund. The Other End of the Canon is a print and photo based project. Current images are screen prints and drawing and print collages, but may also expand into relief and intaglio. Each new image begins with a search for someone to fill the role of a particular saint. Fleming is continuing this print series of not exactly orthodox Patron Saints which begun with last summer’s online exhibition at BSDA, and this Spring’s Right In Front of Your Eye’s portfolio at the Southern Graphics Council International conference. Funds will go toward renting work space and purchasing materials. Please consider donating and/or spreading the word!
|FSU Art MFA ’16 Elise Thompson will be attending The Vermont Studio Center‘s summer artist residency as a way to keep her practice going. Each month, VSC welcomes over 50 artists and writers to its historic campus in northern Vermont. During her 4 week stay in July, Elise can focus on her work as a visual artist for a concentrated, uninterrupted time away from her jobs and daily routine. The Vermont Studio Center also offers the unique opportunity to meet other creatives from across the U.S. and around the world. Attending a residency for Elise’s career is important as an emerging artist. Check out Elise’s Indiegogo campaign for more!
