Winter Workspace Artist Residency 2020 (closed)

When
All Day
Where
Glyndor Gallery

For the 11th consecutive year, Wave Hill transforms Glyndor Gallery to a workspace for New York-area artists, giving them the unique opportunity to explore the winter landscape as a source of inspiration. Intimate exposure to Wave Hill’s thriving plant collections, landscape, history and visitors allows each artist to develop innovative work based on direct observation and communion with nature. The participating artists are: Stephanie Alvarado, Ezra Benus, Maya Ciarrocchi, Environmental Performance Agency (EPA), LoVid, Linda Lauro-Lazin, Samanta Batra Mehta, Beatrice Modisett, Salvador Muñoz, Kymia Nawabi, Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin and Elizabeth Velázquez.

Artists share their studio practice with the public at Drop-In Sundays in January, February and March, and at Open Studios held at the end of each session. In addition, Stephanie Alvarado and Samanta Batra Mehta will be guest artists at the Family Art Project. LoVid (Tali Hinkis) and Elizabeth Velázquez offer workshops for adults. Registration is required for adult workshops.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this influential program, 30 alumni artists will exhibit artwork made during, or inspired by, the residency. Winter Workspace Artists: Returning to the Source will be on view from January 19 to March 29, in Wave Hill House.
