New residencies kick off with Artist “Slide Slam”
Wednesday, September 16, 7:00pm, la Esquina Gallery, 1000 West 25th St.
Charlotte Street Foundation is pleased to announce the selection of 15 visual artists, 3 writers, and 6 performing artists and ensembles for year-long Charlotte Street Foundation studio residencies, to begin September 2015. Charlotte Street Foundation’s Studio Residency Program provides free studios, rehearsal space, and related support for artists of all disciplines in downtown Kansas City.
To kick off the new studio residency term, the public is invited to meet the artists and learn about their work at a free “Studio Residents Slide Slam” Wednesday, September 16, 7:00pm at Charlotte Street’s la Esquina Gallery, 1000 West 25th Street. This fun, informal evening will feature 3-minute (timed) slide presentations (10 slides per artist) by 24 of the incoming studio resident artists—thus providing a rapid-fire introduction to the work, ideas, processes and personalities of these diverse artists.
