VCCA Artist Residency | Auvillar, France


I had the great pleasure of working within the community of Auvillar, France for the month of October, 2018 as a Fellow with the Virginia Center For 
Creative Arts. I spent the time developing a community project that resulted in a book of photographs and drawings and worked with layered collages and clay to react to the history of the place and the environment— creating new stories and "artifacts"

Out of Many
Curated by Julie McKim

Inspired by Joseph Beuys’s idea of “social sculpture”, Out of Many brings together seven distinct artists to distribute their specific ideas and intentions into the world through the far-reaching forum of an art fair.
Post-war German artist Joseph Beuys created the term “social sculpture” to encompass his belief that both art and human creativity have the potential to transform society and enact social and political change. He conceived of his “multiples” as a way to distribute these intentions and ideas to a much larger audience.

Containment
Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg Gallery
June 1–September 9,  2018

Containment features artwork from a group of artists who examine the shipping containers and ships that move goods, people, and power across the oceans. The containerized shipping industry is central to international commerce and largely responsible for our increasingly globalized economy. The artists featured include David Packer, who has created a ceramic version of a shipping container, and Linda Ganjian whose sculptural installation reimagines a container-ship accident. Also included are Erin Diebboll and Gabby Miller, who have both been artists-in-residence on container ships and have created art in response to their firsthand experiences—Diebboll’s meticulous drawings illustrate the contents of shipping containers, and Miller used the ship’s engine oil as her medium for a series of paintings.

Additionally, a site-specific installation by Leslie Kerby in Marité & Joe Robinson Strolling Gallery I, explores the movement of shipping containers and incorporates sculpture, mixed media works on paper, and video animation.
