Residency: October – November 2014
My time at Sculpture Space was very productive. I was able to start and fully finish two projects and get the necessary parts for a third project constructed, which considering the detailed and labor intensive nature of my work, is quite an accomplishment. The media of the work ranged from fine metalworking to hand beading to constructing armatures for a costume. I was also able to use Sculpture Space’s central location to visit many wonderful local museums as well as those in NYC, Massachusetts, and Vermont. The residency staff was exceedingly helpful in making my time in Utica as productive as possible whether it was providing me with the right equipment, helping make contacts with curators, fabricators, and local artists, and even giving me recommendations on which bakeries were best. I have recommended Sculpture Space to many other artists and would come back in a heart beat.
