Cambridge, MA — Gallery 263 is pleased to announce the four artists selected for our Summer 2017 Artist Residency Program: Emily Brodrick, Kwang Choi, Kelly Knight, and Daniel Zeese. This year’s cohort represents a variety of creative trajectories that intersect in their engagement with fiber media. Each artist’s practice holds a unique connection to fiber – some are just beginning to embrace it, some are hoping to push their fiber practice in new directions, and others are looking to branch out, away from fiber, towards other sculptural, 2D, or time-based media. Outside of their shared interest in yarn, thread, garments and textiles, the artists come from diverse backgrounds, work in disparate ways, and grapple with a variety of questions about what it means to be human, have a human society, a human history, and human hopes and dreams.
Interspersed into the Residency are two public critique sessions, during which we will discuss process, intention, and resolution. After six weeks in the studio, the artists will showcase new and in-progress works during the final week of the Residency.
Visitors are welcome to stop in to Gallery 263 and chat when the Artists in Residence are working throughout the Summer.
