Join Highpoint as we mark the conclusion of the 2006–2007 Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Residency. The fourth year of funding by the Jerome Foundation provided Brian Aldrich, Emmy Lingscheit, and Jon Renzella with nine months of independent access to Highpoint’s printmaking facilities. Their new prints, created during the Residency, are featured in this exhibition.
The Emerging Printmakers’ Residency, funded with a generous grant from the Jerome Foundation, is open to emerging Minnesota artists—in other words, artists who have proven technical ability and dedication to their work, but have not yet received a commensurate amount of professional accomplishment and recognition. The three new residents were chosen based on demonstrated artistic ability and promise.
“Thanks to the Jerome Foundation’s continued support, the Emerging Printmakers Residency is now moving into its fourth consecutive term,” commented Jerome Residency Coordinator Joanne Price. “And again, three talented new artists that have been chosen to participate this year. We expect great things to come from Brian Aldrich, Emmy Lingscheit, and Jon Renzella during their residency.”
Special thanks goes to the excellent panel of jurors that made the selections: Kris Douglas, Chief Curator, Rochester Art Center; Lisa Michaux, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings, Minneapolis Institute of Arts; and John Rasmussen, Founder and Director, Midway Contemporary Art.
