I've been accepted to participate in a residency program at Peters Valley in Layton, NJ! On a whim I applied to their guest artist residency program to spend a month in part of an artistic community where I would have a private studio and lodging accommodations. Thursday, Rick Marshall, head of fine metals and special topics phoned to notify me of my acceptance.
This is a phenomenal artistic growth opportunity! I will be putting my lessons on hold for the month and dedicating all of my time to painting new works. Peters Valley Craft Center along with the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation will provide me with room and board, plus a stipend. I'm required to live there for the month. Now . . . I just have to figure out what to do with my puppy, Ringo.
