In Residence: Selections from Haystack’s Open Studio Residency

May 25 – July 13

Haystack’s first exhibition of the summer season will feature the work of ten artists, working in a variety of disciplines, who have taken part in Haystacks’ Open Studio Residency. This exhibition includes work that was either made during, or inspired by, their time at Haystack.

The Open Studio Residency fosters a dynamic exchange among peers by providing two weeks of uninterrupted studio time for emerging and established artists working in the field of craft and other creative disciplines. The program extends our commitment to supporting artists and encouraging the development of new ideas.

The Open Studio Residency began in 2013 and is generously supported by Haystack’s Windgate Foundation Endowment for Programs.

DSC_0006Haystack’s exhibition series is an outgrowth of the school ’s commitment to supporting the dynamic work being done by makers of contemporary craft and to the creative process implicit in that. These exhibitions are an incredible resource for the community—featuring work by internationally distinguished makers—and also provide an opportunity to learn about these makers’ creative process as well. Past exhibitions have included recycled and repaired Japanese textiles – to work by traditional artists from Northern New England – to works by artists whose creative process has been influenced by their time at, and association with, Haystack. The Center for Community Programs is open on Wednesday and Friday-Sunday from 1:00–5:00 p.m. throughout the summer season, with informal receptions held one Sunday afternoon for each exhibition. From time to time, we also schedule visits by appointment. These events, free and open to the public, attract a cross section of island residents and summer visitors, as well as our workshop participants.
