Since the 1990s, the Glen Arbor Arts Center has welcomed visiting artists who want to immerse themselves in their work. The GAAC’s Suzanne Wilson Artist-in-Residence 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 and time to develop, to an on-going project that might be nearing conclusion.
The 2021 program begins in May. Each of the GAAC’s residents offers 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 10, Janet Dunbar will discuss how her residency was focused on the Leelanau flora and fauna for inspiration. This Michigan potter hand builds pots and fires them in the tradition of Japanese raku.
