Highpoint is pleased to announce the recipients of its fifth Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Residency: Pamela Carberry, Andy Morien, and Kirsten Peterson. These residents will receive nine months of access to Highpoint’s fully equipped printmaking shop as well as technical support, critiques with arts professionals, and the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment that encourages experimentation and growth. The program will conclude with a group exhibition featuring works created by the artists at Highpoint. It will open May 30, 2008—details to come as the date approaches.
The residency, funded with a generous grant from the Jerome Foundation, is open to emerging Minnesota artists—defined here as artists who show significant potential, yet have not received a commensurate amount of professional accomplishment or recognition. The three new residents were selected on the basis of their dedication, interest, and potential in printmaking and the artistic merit of their work.
Special thanks to this year’s panel of jurors: Sally Johnson, Director, Groveland Gallery; Clarence Morgan, Art Department Chair and Drawing and Painting Professor, University of Minnesota; and Kris Douglas, Chief Curator, Rochester Art Center.
