Artist Residency Program
In 1998 Mudflat began offering a one-year residency position to clay artists. This highly competitive program provides a private studio space at no cost with access to Mudflat’s facility, and opportunities for the resident to teach and sell their work. Mudflat’s Artist-in-Residence for 2013-14 is Kyla Toomey.
An exhibition of Kyla’s work will be featured at Mudflat from
July 25 through August 8. Join us for a reception on Friday July 25,
The 2013-14 Artist Residency is funded by a private donation.
See below for 2014-15 residency information; applications will be due April 16, 2014.
Kyla Toomey, 2013-14 Artist-in-Residence:
“Making pots is about production and interaction. The repetitive actions of making, the stacks that form and grow in the studio, seeing the way bowls nest within each other, chattering up the grouping, picking up one plate to reveal the one beneath, and the feeling of accomplishment that accompanies the piles. I love the size of pots, the accessibility of the objects and the interaction it invites. I invest so much of myself interacting with the surface pushing, pulling, and carefully forcing movement of the material, that this effort seems futile to me if the objects cannot be physically engaged.” To see examples of Kyla’s work: www.kylatoomey.com
