Center for Art in Wood & NextFab Winter Residency

Center for Art in Wood & NextFab Winter Residency

This Deadline Expired: Friday, September 18, 2020

The Center for Art in Wood and NextFab are pleased to announce the launch of a Winter Residency Program designed for artists in Greater Philadelphia working in the medium of wood. This initiative is a collaboration between The Center for Art in Wood and NextFab, a network of member-based maker spaces. They are inviting applications from artists who work either solely in wood or other materials in combination with wood and can demonstrate technical proficiency with woodworking equipment. Reflecting their support of environmental stewardship, artists will use reclaimed wood for at least fifty percent of their work during the residency. A jury of makers and educators will award one fellowship annually, and the residency culminates in a solo exhibition in the gallery at NextFab’s new North Philadelphia location.

Submissions will be accepted from August 1 through September 18, 2020. The selected Fellow will be announced the week of October 5, 2020, and the residency runs January 11 through March 1, 2021. The exhibition of residency work, presented in the gallery at North Philadelphia NextFab, will open on March 4th, with an artist talk delivered at the Center for Art in Wood on March 10th.

Fran Lightman Gibson a Philadelphia painter working primarily with oil on canvas.
I attribute the source of my artistic inspiration to my love, fear, and awe of nature as it both represents and defines the tension and optimism of life. My “Take Any Road Series” encourages the viewer to have the confidence to experience life no matter how difficult or confusing, beautiful, or powerful. All of this exists with an underlying structure of assumptions.
I think we all see the world a little differently and feel our own experience uniquely.  I paint using what all of my senses have given to me as the experience.  When I paint the sky, I am feeling the wind, putting it to music in my head, remembering the smell of the chance of rain, tasting the air, seeing the clouds dance.
