Recently, AAC accepted two new artists into its studio residency program: Jen Noone and Olivia Tripp Morrow. They were selected, after a rigorous application process, on the basis of quality, suitability, and community outreach.
Like the eight resident artists they are joining, Jen and Olivia are talented professionals whose primary occupation is fine art. As residents at AAC, they occupy beautiful studios at very subsidized rates, where they can remain for up to six years. During that time, they will give back to the community by opening their studios to the public during special events, contributing monthly service hours to AAC, and periodically exhibiting their work.
You can experience Jen and Olivia’s work this summer in Within/Between, now on view in the Wyatt Resident Artists Gallery.
Artists need space to create art. And in one of the most expensive regions in the country, affordable studio space is increasingly rare. That’s why the studio residency program is a core part of AAC’s mission.
Support art and artists in your community! Help AAC sustain its residency program with a matching grant from The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation and our dedicated Board of Directors.
