One Week from Spring. Ruben Castillo
July 27 @ 5:00 pm - August 21 @ 9:00 pm
One Week from Spring explores memory, records, observation, and narratives around what author Kathleen Stewart calls “ordinary affects” through the production of a new suite of intaglio prints and drawings. The imagery will circulate around softness and domestic intimacy to produce a space addressing collective desire and connection.
The goal of the Lawrence Art’s Center’s project-based residency is to help support, sustain, and foster artistic growth by providing material support for the development of special projects. With an emphasis on interdisciplinary and community-oriented work, the project-based residency strives to assist artists working in any discipline and generating works competitive on a national scale.
The duration of the project-based residency is flexible, spanning from two weeks to three months, during which time housing can be provided. Selected artists will receive up to $300 toward materials. Artists will have use of studio space at the Lawrence Arts Center during established times.
The Lawrence Arts Center is staffed with experts in each of our program fields, as well as arts professionals, and two annual artists-in-residence in printmaking and ceramics who can prove invaluable resources and energetic studio co-inhabitants for short-term residencies.

We will create and print experimental impressions and combinations from life and imagination using both hard and soft ground etching techniques as well as drypoint.
