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 May 28 Indiana potter Samantha Purze talks about her residency. She is developing a series of ceramic vessels that use map-like drawings on the surface to talk about personal connection, and her visual travels.
