Asheville Artist Mark Flowers receives 2016 Golden Foundation Residency
The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts
A meaningful resource for the professional visual artist.
‘The opportunity to create works at a place where I will have access to technicians and paint from the best acrylic paint company I know is a tremendous honor. I have been using Golden Artist Colors since mid-1980’s. This is like visiting the ‘mother ship’! I am truly honored to be a part of this program.’
From the Golden website:
In 2012, the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts opened its doors to a one-of-a-kind artist residency for artists working in paint. In the beautiful rolling hills of central New York and just several hundred yards from the Golden Artist Colors manufacturing facility, a 19th-century barn has been transformed into a 21st-century artist residency, with large studio spaces and private residency apartments. Artists-in-residence will participate in a completely unique opportunity to explore the widest, most innovative range of materials and technology available today for professional artists working with paint.
With a greater array of materials available to artists than ever before, this is an exciting time in art history. The Golden Foundation Residency Program is specifically designed to assist the professional artist in discovering and exploring the many materials and technologies available today. Through the Golden Foundation, residents will have the unparalleled opportunity to work with dozens of unique materials and technologies.
Our residencies are based on the exploration of innovative uses in waterborne materials and oil paint technology. Residents will discover materials that will challenge the way they think about paint. They will be introduced to materials that will open up new methods and new channels for expression and the creative process.
In 2015, The Golden Foundation will be offering six Exploratory Residency Program sessions. Each session will last four weeks, with up to three artists per session.
