Awarded A Dresden, Germany Artist Exchange Residency!
by Daric Gill
This year has been full of amazing adventures and it looks like 2019 will only get better! I’m ecstatic to announce that I’ve been awarded an artist exchange residency in Dresden, Germany for 2019! Each year the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen (Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony) – offers two Columbus artists the opportunity to undertake a residency in Dresden, Germany, lasting two to three months between March – November. Travel expenses, a small stipend, a living space, and work studio will also be provided as part of the experience.
I’m honestly gobsmacked and completely honored by such a generous residency. This is a prestigious opportunity that only comes available once an artist wins the Visual Arts Fellowship, a merit-based award of funding and exhibition . Last month, I was selected as one of the 2018 fellowship recipients by Greater Columbus Arts Council in conjunction with the Columbus Museum of Art. Past and present fellows can compete with other former winners for this residency. As you can imagine, the pool of artists are quite amazing and I’m tremendously flattered that I was picked out of such a quality roster of talented individuals.
You can expect plenty of posts from Germany during my time there, as I plan to chronicle my work and experiences there.
A special thanks to:
