2023 Whitaker Artist-in-Residence Exhibition
June 30th - July 29th
2023-2024 Whitaker Artists-in-Residence Marina Peng and Mee Jey explore ideas of cultural identity and isolation, motherhood, and, ultimately, survival through textile-based works.
Craft Alliance proudly presents the 2022-2023 Whitaker Artist-in-Residence cohort: Marina Peng and Mee Jey. For over 15 years, the Craft Alliance Artist-in-Residence program has given early-career artists engaging with craft the space and professional support to build their practice through teaching opportunities, studio access, and funding for materials and professional development. The 11-month program culminates in an exhibition and catalog documenting their time at Craft Alliance.
Artists-in-Residence at Craft Alliance
For over 15 years, the Whitaker Artists-In-Residence program at Craft Alliance has supported emerging and mid-career craft artists looking to expand their artistic horizons and develop their practice in a collaborative, community-based art center.
Craft Alliance is proud to offer this 11-month program to up to two artists each year, starting in September and ending in July. Artists share a private studio and have access to our six main studio areas outside of class. In addition, they receive a monthly materials stipend, a professional development reimbursement fund, tuition waivers for workshops per session, and various teaching and professional development opportunities. The residency culminates in a group exhibition at the Craft Alliance Staenberg Gallery.
This program is funded by the generosity of the Whitaker Foundation.
