Winter Workspace 2015
January 02 - April 12, 2015
Every winter, Wave Hill uses Glyndor Gallery as studio spaces for artists in the Winter Workspace Program. Twelve artists—Julian Chams, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Beatrice Glow, Musa Hixson , Elizabeth Hoy, Sara Jimenez, Fay Ku, Amy Lincoln, Julia Oldham, Ivan Stojakovic, Alisha Wessler and Saya Woolfalk—will create new work and develop ongoing projects, using the exceptional gardens, woodland setting and plant collections as sources of inspiration. Representing a variety of artistic practices and mediums, artists are in residence over a six-week session. Read the press releases for thefirst session of the Winter Workspace program and the second session, which began February 23, to learn more.
Each of the two sessions includes an Open Studio Sunday and a series of artist-led workshops for visitors to participate in hands-on art activities. At these events, the public has the opportunity to learn about the creative process behind each artist’s studio practice:
