Twispworks Installation, residency and interview

Monday, December 17th, 2012

I spent three months as an artist in residence at Twispworks (Twisp, WA). In exchange for my stay I was commissioned to do a a project for the campus. I chose to do an installation in a facade on the campus. I chose to do a series of faux stained glass windows with fables of the Okanagans (a local tribe) featured in each one.

Now in its second year, the TwispWorks artist residency is a partnership with Methow Arts Alliance and Confluence Gallery that invites artists working in a variety of media to visit Twisp for three months and interact with the local arts community. Visiting artists live and work on the TwispWorks campus, and either leave behind a piece of artwork for the TwispWorks campus, or create an educational art project. Local artists also use studio space at TwispWorks through the residency program.

During my residency at Twispworks I would go out and sketch the local scenery. I turned some of the sketches into paintings and eight of them ended up being shown at The Confluence Gallery.


Confluence Gallery & Arts Center continues to develop as the center of cultural activities in the Methow hosting lectures, world music, as well as education and professional development opportunities for artists. As one of the few non-profit art galleries in the country, CGAC is intertwined in the community as a gathering place and host to a wide variety of groups and art classes for children to adults.
