Join Highpoint as we mark the conclusion of the 2009–2010 Jerome Emerging
Printmakers Residency. This seventh year of funding from the Jerome Foundation provided artists Katinka Galanos, Miles Mendenhall and Justin Terlecki with access to Highpoint’s printmaking facilities as well as technical support, critiques with area artists and art professionals and the opportunity to work in a studio environment that encourages experimentation and growth. Their new prints, created during the residency,
are featured in this exhibit.
The show opens with a free public reception on Friday, May 28 from 6:30 – 9 PM. Refreshments will be served and the artists will be present to answer questions about their prints. Additionally, North Dakota street duo Calamity and the Owl will perform their signature blend of folk, country and bluegrass music.
The Jerome Residency was established in 2003 with generous funding from St. Paul-based Jerome Foundation. It serves emerging Minnesota printmakers who show significant potential yet have not received a commensurate amount of professional accomplishment or recognition in the field. Jerome residents are selected on the basis of their dedication, interest and potential in printmaking and the artistic merit of their work.
A special thank you to jurors Caroline Swiszcz, Minnesota artist, and Todd Bockley, owner of Bockley Gallery and independent curator, who chose the three Jerome artists from a pool of 24 applicants.
