The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts received its largest amount of applications ever, heading into our 11th year! Over 600 artists from around the world applied for only 18 spots in the 2023 Residency Program. The Independent Selection Committee was tasked with a difficult mission; to select among these many talented artists. On behalf of the Golden Foundation, we want to congratulate the following 18 artists who will be joining us next year:
Joy Gerrard, Deborah Zlotsky, Alisa Sikelianos-Carter, Jamele Wright, Carol Prusa, Susan Hoffer, Haoyun Erin Zhao, Miguel Arzabe, Emma Roche, Jan Dickey, Natasha Campbell, Emily Gherard, Lynne McDaniel, Genna Howard, Aaron Brown, Laura Colomb, Dina Abdulkarim, Perky Edgerton
The 2023 Residency Program begins in March and will run through mid-November. Residents live and work in a completely renovated chicken barn for 4 weeks and have access to an unlimited supply of acrylics, oils, watercolor and other art materials. Additionally, an educational component of the program includes such topics as frugal use of water in the studio, varnishing, best practices in studio waste management and packing, shipping, and storing one’s artwork.
Thank you to all those who applied this year and to our community supporters of the Golden Foundation!
The application for the 2024 season will open in the summer of 2023!
