The Textile Arts Center has announced a new Garden Residency based in the Sewing Seeds garden this summer. What a great opportunity for a textile artist to utilize the garden as a work & exhibition space! The resident artist will have access to the TAC studios with all the tools and equipment they hold, and teach a community workshop in the garden. The selfsame garden that was awarded 2012's Best Garden by the Village Voice, and which I played a small part in designing and building.
From the Sewing Seeds site:
Sewing Seeds is proud to introduce the Garden Residency this season. The Garden Residency will grant one artist or designer the opportunity to develop an art project for the Natural Dye garden during the month of August. The Natural Dye garden is located on Bergen Street, in a previously abandoned lot, occupying 800 square feet with a variety of dyeing plants. The Natural Dye garden is a community space, open for all, that acts simultaneously as a resource for information on natural dyes and as a leisure space. The Garden will host the Residency and serve both as working space and exhibition venue.
Applications are due May 15, 2013.
