Call for Applicants: Textile Arts Center Work in Progress Residency

This Deadline Expired: Monday, May 6, 2019

The Textile Arts Center’s Work in Progress program offers selected artists TAC Manhattan’s storefront window for one month to (re)create an active studio of their work. The program focuses on engaging the public with the work of textile artists and give an inside look into an artist’s studio. WIP artists maintain “live studio” times where they can interact with the community and discuss their processes and techniques. The artist will also leave behind a clear visual narrative so the public can get a glimpse of “work in progress” even when the artist isn’t present. This is an ideal program for artists who enjoy speaking about their creative process to the public and want to take advantage of a large Manhattan storefront to promote and display their work.

WIP cycles start on the first of every month and run for the full month. Install must take place between the 1st-3rd and deinstall must take place on the 28th-31st. Selected artist will commit to at least one weekly shift of public hours (Saturdays 2-6PM).

TAC WiP Program Provides:

– Storefront studio 10 x 5 feet and equipped with a table, chair, pinboard wall and shelving. Other equipment is depending on availability, and materials are not included.

– Access to Open Studio at TAC Brooklyn

– WiP residents will be featured and promoted on the TAC social media, including blog, Instagram, and Facebook

– 10% discount off TAC Classes

Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)

Su Knoll Horty uses bold colors to explores the power of color to elicit emotion, Su sees it as her task to convey the exuberance she feels when working with the saturated colors in her painting. She is fascinated by the spatial dimensions, which can develop through the relationship of colors.
