Charlotte Street Foundation is pleased to announce the selection of 22 visual artists, 4 writers, and 9 performing artists and ensembles for year-long Charlotte Street Foundation studio residencies, to begin September, 2013. Charlotte Street Foundation’s Studio Residency Program provides free studios, rehearsal space, and related support for artists of all disciplines in downtown Kansas City. The 2013-14 residents, selected through a competitive process beginning with an open call for applications, include several artists relocating to Kansas City from the east and west coasts, as well as a number of artists awarded second residency terms.
To kick off the new studio residency year, the public is invited to meet the artists and learn about their work at a free “Studio Residents Slide Slam” Wednesday, September 4, 7:30pm 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 nearly 30 of the incoming studio resident artists—thus providing a rapid-fire introduction to the work, ideas, processes and personalities of these diverse artists.
THE 2013-14 CHARLOTTE STREET STUDIO RESIDENTS ARE:
VISUAL ARTISTS: Carolina Aranibar-Fernandez, Justin Beachler, Jessica Borusky, Timothy Brown, Christopher Daharsh, Eric Dobbins, Lindsey Eskind, Lindsay Fernandez, Amy Fredman, Madeline Gallucci, Brett Ginsburg, Rachel Helm, Laura Isaac, Erin Jones, Rodofo Marron, Zachary Miley, Matthew Roche, Dean Roper, Jonas Sebura, Maegan Stracy, Jennifer Williams, Elizabeth Woodfill.
