Holes in the Wall Collective Creative Residency Program

Holes in the Wall Collective Creative Residency Program

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, August 12, 2017

JOIN Holes in the Wall Collective this summer in rural Pennsylvania for THREE-DAY and WEEK-LONG OPEN RESIDENCY PERIODS, for one of their FRAMEWORK themed WEEKS, for a Group, Troupe or Organization CABIN RENTAL, or to attend one of our WORKSHOPS/RETREATS.

INVITING PEOPLE ACROSS DISCIPLINES TO ENGAGE WITH THEIR PRACTICE AND SHARE COLLECTIVE SPACE. Expanding our residency to those working in science, policy, economics, mathematics, education, research, activism, pedagogy, technology in addition to the more known forms of creative practice in the visual arts, writing, performance & music.

HOLES IN THE WALL COLLECTIVE bridges together PEOPLE – IDEAS – MATERIALS – curating new experiences of form and content through unexpected engagement. We look to make holes in the walls of the normal, supporting and cultivating game changers in all forms – educators, economists, scientists, activists, artists . . . We share space for collaboration, for bridging together disciplines and for conversation and inquiry.

THE HOLES IN THE WALL CREATIVE RESIDENCY is held on 29 acres of woods, fields and a one-acre pond. Ample work space for mediums of all kinds – a large converted stone barn with group studios and space for movement – plus trails for walking, a pool and outside work spaces. Residents are housed in an all-wooden large cabin with a large kitchen and living area, screened in porch and four bedrooms – two singles, a double, and a dormitory space ideal for collaborators, each with a working desk or table.

BIG PROJECTS. SMALL PROJECTS. COLLABORATION. SOLO WORK.

As we barrel towards possible global calamity, creative work is all the more relevant and art all the more necessary. We often ask- do we have time for it? Do we have time not to do it?

Come join creatives of all kinds to work on your work, away from your daily context.

Programming runs from May through August 2017.

My art is a psychological diary of my personal translation of the individual’s journey through life. It is a kind of fairytale; a story that teaches, both symbolic and narrative.

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.
