Utopian Living: Byrdcliffe Artists in Residence Exhibition
February 29 @ 3:00 pm - March 29 @ 5:00 pmFree
On Saturday, February 29, the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts will spotlight the works of Byrdcliffe’s 2019 artists-in-residence with visual art, music, panel talks, an opening reception, and readings by resident writers as part of the exhibition Utopian Living: Byrdcliffe Artists-in-Residence 2019, on view through March 29. The exhibition features painting, ceramics, fiber art, video, installation, sound, photography and collage; poetry, playwriting, and fiction.
Utopian Living is an ode to our own searches for community, space & clarity, and freedom to be as we are. Byrdcliffe’s Artist-in-Residence Program annually welcomes over 80 creative minds for full-year, 5-month, or 4-week residencies to live and work in Byrdcliffe’s historic 240-acre mountain landscape. Artists from all disciplines and backgrounds are given the freedom to practice within a creative community. A supportive collective of individuals naturally unfolds within Byrdciffe’s sprawling landscape as artists find solace in one another’s creative pursuits, resting for a time in mutual creative ambitions.
This annual exhibition in the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, in its fourth year running, is one of many ways in which Byrdcliffe’s identity as a historic art colony founded in 1902 is joined with its function as a space in which contemporary artistic discourse thrives.
