CURATOR'S STATEMENT

The dichotomy of artist to work is mirrored in the concept of artist residency to artist. The process each artist embarks upon defines their product, while their participation in a residency program defines the community and history of that residency. In today’s political and social climate, there are innumerable pressures to pursue a career in just about any field besides fine art, yet artists are compulsively drawn to work, to their need for expression. In the face of these pressures, artists continue to create. Gallery Aferro’s Studio Residency has provided artists access to creative space and community for over 10 years. The residency makes the artist’s process possible on a scale that might otherwise not be possible. Each artist works to define a vision of creativity and expression, while Gallery Aferro works to provide an outlet for these artists, both in terms of productivity and access to community engagement. Everyone In Their Own Way is a look into the reciprocating relationships between community, process, cultural content, and artist.
