We are trying a new social gathering this time to welcome Hinge Artist, Rosalie Smith from, New Orleans, LA to Fergus Falls! Rosalie will be a resident with us from Monday, April 15th until Saturday, May 4th, for our Career Development Program.
We are having a potluck! Please bring a dish, a side or desert that you would like to share with everyone, maybe a family recipe! This will be a great networking opportunity for everyone! Springboard will have an appetizer, beverages, plates, cups and silverware, and Rosalie will share what projects she will be working on while she is in residence. We can share food and talk about all the wonderful things about our community and ideas!
This event is FREE and open to the public.
Please share and invite family, friends and co-workers to our first potluck!
Rosalie Smith is an emerging artist born in Blacksburg, VA. She grew up in Upstate New York, Miami, and New Orleans, where she currently resides. She completed her BA in Studio Art and Landscape Studies at Smith College in 2015, primarily under the guidance of Lynne Yamamoto, Kevin Quashie, and John Gibson. She has shown her work at venues such as The Freezer (Skagastrond, Iceland), Janotta Gallery (Northampton, MA), The Furnace (Albany, NY), Antenna Gallery (New Orleans, LA), Alice Galleries (Islesboro, ME), and Brand New Orleans Gallery (New Orleans, LA), and the Contemporary Arts Center (New Orleans), among others. Smith recently concluded her position as Teaching Artist in Residence at Snow Farm Craft School in Williamsburg, MA, and has previously completed a residency at Nes Artist Residency (Skargastrond, Iceland).
‘My work is about struggle for permanence, and the ways this struggle leads to pain, fear, and anxiety, as well as more specific ailments such as misogyny and racism. I (attempt to) adhere to and practice Vipassana meditation and its accompanying principles, which often influence my work. Among the most pervasive Vipassana-related concepts that enter my work is that of “Anicca,” the doctrine of impermanence, which states that the truth of all physical and mental manifestations is change. Anicca is present as both the direct and indirect subject of my work, just as it manifests in all aspects of life,’ says Hinge Artist Rosalie Smith.
