Border Art Residency

Border Art Residency

This Deadline Expired: Friday, April 23, 2021

The Border Art Residency, a non-profit organization affiliated with the El Paso Community Foundation, offers a selected artist a period of retreat for creative work in a living/studio space in the heart of El Paso, Texas. Resident artists are provided with a fully furnished living/working space, a monthly stipend of $600, and all utilities paid (except phone and Internet). The living space is a fully furnished 11 x 16’(Approximately) studio apartment.

Through a newly formed partnership with Artstream, a transformative learning program supported by the El Paso Community Foundation, visiting border artists will be able to share their art and thinking process, and stimulate dialogue with learners in the El Paso area. Artstream collaborates with artists and participating schools or cultural organizations. It will help the residency artist connect to the El Paso community by sharing how they see, hear, and feel our experiences with empathy, criticality, and nuance. Artstream has worked with the El Paso Museum of Art, UTEP’s Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens, Rio Bosque Wetlands Park, elementary schools, and well as the federal prison system.

Sharing the experiences I have had with race and gender is a catalyst for my work. My experience growing up very protected in a race not completely my own, was not concerning to me as a child. When I was introduced to a mixed race population that was very concerned with labeling and grouping people, the experience was unsettling. From that point, I had to think about race and culture and how they related to my daily performance.

Shaver's large abstract canvases and smaller paintings on Evolon paper feature a thickly textured surface and bold gestural brushwork often accented with calligraphic line. Her expressive work has a raw primal character.
