Program Overview: GoggleWorks Center for the Arts will offer three residencies this summer to outstanding creatives who will spend 10-weeks, from June 6 – August 12, on their campus developing a project or body of work. The Summer Residency Program was created to infuse new, creative energy to the GoggleWorks’ community with an emphasis on facilitating cross-disciplinary experimentation. The residency provides personal work space, access to GoggleWorks’ communal studios (ceramics, gardens, warm glass, hot glass, photography, printmaking, metalsmithing, wood, and V.R. Lab), and a culminating exhibition or event showcasing the residents’ efforts. Selection of residents is highly competitive and based on the strength of the applicant’s project proposal and/or quality of work and experience. Residents should be self-motivated and enthusiastic, dedicated to their artwork, and enjoy working with other people in a communal studio setting.

The Summer Residency Program provides: 


Accepted applicants agree to: 

* Urban horticulture resident may leave alternate legacy component outside of the visual arts


Portfolio-Based Application: The portfolio-based application allows creatives to focus on their personal studio practice and the development of a body of work. Portfolio-based applications are able to select one studio of focus; however, special consideration will be given to artists interested in developing multi-media work within more than one of the eight studios. 

Place-Making Application: The place-making application allows creatives to focus on a site specific project to be completed during the 10-week residency time frame. Special consideration will be given to proposals that take advantage of the multi-media possibilities offered on their campus and/or involve community based installations.  Applicants are encouraged to be cognizant of GoggleWorks’ surrounding urban environment and consider how their projects may provide a mechanism for social outreach and/or emphasize community engagement.

Urban Horticulture Application: The urban-growing application allows horticulturalist creatives to focus their energy into the newest studio at GoggleWorks: GoggleWorks Gardens at Lauer’s Park. This urban community gardening partnership takes creativity in a new direction as the summer resident will focus on growing and gardening practices for the 10-week residency time frame. Special consideration will be given to proposals that take advantage of trends in organic growing, urban farming movements, and sharing skills with the immediate community. Applicants are encouraged to be cognizant of the reality that GoggleWorks’ is located in a food desert, and consider how their projects may provide a mechanism for social outreach and/or emphasize community engagement.

In his mixed media work, Tom Herbert explores various concepts of abstraction through the use of repeated pattens and shapes. His use of fractured elements to create designs gives his work an kinetic energy that keeps the viewers eye engaged.

As a native of Israel, Dganit grew up in a Kibbutz. She moved with her husband to the US in 1992. After years of creating art as a self-taught artist, she became a full time student at UNC Chapel Hill. Moving to Philadelphia, she earned her BFA with honors from the University of The Arts, and MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art. Currently, she is working in her studio at the Crane Old School in Philadelphia.
In her work she is pulling from her reservoir of life experiences, memories, intuitive processes, and curiosity to construct a “place”, an environment – a landscape. Within it, she aims to present an idea composed of multiple layers, which focuses not only on the physical “being” of land, but also on land as a source of emotional and psychological mood.

Karen Hunter McLaughlin is a lifelong Philadelphia artist who has worked in traditional 2-D mediums as well as steel wire sculpture. Current work themes are a congruence of large format, multilayer prints creating 2-D inhabitable virtual-vistas, and a collection of smaller prints that focus on human connection, much like the ripple effect of a stone thrown in water.
