Announcing our 2021-2022 Artists-in-Residence!

The Lawrence Arts Center is thrilled to welcome new Resident Artists to our Print and Clay studios for 2021-2022. Our annual residents spend their year working in our studios, teaching, doing community engagement, and developing new bodies of work. They infuse our building with enthusiasm, extensive skills, and a wealth of experience in ceramics & printmaking. They bring fresh ideas and new perspectives to our community and help spur on conversations about contemporary practices in art & craft. 

Following an internationally competitive process with countless highly qualified applicants, we are delighted to announce that we have selected Rosa Nussbaum as our printmaker and Jonathan Christensen Caballero as our ceramicist.
