119 Gallery announces a new Artists In Residence Program to be run annually during the month of August. Each year 3 artists will be chosen to participate including a visiting artist from outside of Lowell, an artist living and working in Lowell, and recent graduate from UMass Lowell.
The 3 artists for this year are –
Jeffu Warmouth, a contemporary artist based in Groton and Fitchburg, MA. Born in San Diego, CA in 1970, he received a BA from the University of Michigan in 1992, and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts / Tufts University in 1997. He is Professor of Communications Media at Fitchburg State University.
Adam Norton, an artist from Lowell, MA. His most recent work has been in vector graphics translated to laser cut plexiglass. All works in this medium involve a pairing of figure (himself in black underwear) and text (lyrics, phrases, etc), taking cues from his favorite comic books and bands. Adam’s other work is in minimalist sculpture, focusing on material, systematic processes, and geometry. He is the manager of the UMass Lowell NERVE Center, a robot test facility, and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from UMass Lowell in 2010.
Stephanie Wilson, born in Lowell, she attended college at The Art Institute of Boston and just finished her BFA with a graphic design concentration at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Her work has evolved from multi-media fine art, to digital art and web design. Her Senior Studio exhibit at the University consisted of a program she wrote in Processing (an open source programming language) that generated collages. As a new graduate, she is interested in acquiring more skills in programming, while also exploring sonic arts.
During the month of August the artists will create a collaborative installation for exhibit in the gallery September 3 – 28, 2013.
