Mixed media artist Kimberly Stoney turns to the world of music for a new series of collaged paintings during her Glen Arbor Arts Center residency August 28 – September 10. A Massachusetts resident, Stoney’s residency project was inspired by a line from a Talking Heads song, which refers to “home” – a subject that recurs in her practice.
Each of the GAAC’s artist-residents offer a conversational presentation at the end of their stay. The presentations begin at noon at the GAAC. They are free, and open to the public. On September 9 Stoney will discuss her new series of works entitled “Naïve Melody,” also the title of a Talking Head song.
Since the 1990s, the GAAC has welcomed visiting artists who want to immerse themselves in their work. The GAAC’s AIR program offers up to seven, creative practitioners a two-week respite from their daily lives in order to focus on a new idea that needs space, or to develop an on-going project.
