Speculations in time: contemporary approaches to working from the landscape
March 17 | 2:00 pm
David’s residency focuses on furthering four related bodies of work that explore flux in the landscape: Land Harps, Collaboration Drawings, Color Studies, and Current Castings. Expanding on the traditions of perceptually-based location painting and drawing, David explores intersections with sculpture and digital practices such as sound and video. He will share about his artistic investigations which are thematically focused on the unique sense of time within landscapes and the temporary and fragile nature of existence. 

Grand Marais Art Colony Artist Residency Series
The Art Colony provides artists with independent work space in professional studios amidst the backdrop of a stunning landscape. An environment of creative freedom supports the process and development of new works, allowing for a combination of aesthetic inquiry, creative risk-taking, experimentation, and artistic development.
Two concurrent juried residencies are available in 2017, one in the Founders Hall multi-use Studio and one in the Eco-friendly Printmaking Studio. Juried residents are provided with two weeks of independent studio access, lodging, and a weekly stipend. Residents may choose to provide a community engagement component (optional) for an additional stipend.  

Grand Marais and the Art Colony 
Grand Marais has long supported the arts and is home to many artists. March is a quiet time in our community, lending itself well to a focused residency. At the same time, there are many outdoor activities within easy access including skiing, snow shoeing, and hiking.
The longest-lived art colony in Minnesota, the Grand Marais Art Colony began in 1947 as a summer refuge for artists seeking study and creative inspiration within the dynamic North Shore landscape.
Since that time, the Art Colony has served as a creative retreat and catalyst, helping people to foster a unique relationship between outdoor inspiration and artistic pursuit.
