I'm pleased to share that I've been awarded a Rhode Island State Council on the Arts scholarship to attend the 2017 Alliance of Artists Communities conference in Denver in October. This scholarship is a great boost as my husband David and I look to formalize our habitual hosting of artists and scholars into a proper Artist Residency Program. We've been operating ad hoc for several years out of our home in Providence, giving space, feedback, and excellent grilled food to wayfaring artists, but now we want to add some space and dig into a community even deeper. Participation in the AAC conference will fertilize our thinking. Stay tuned for more adventures and musings.
