Artist-In-Residence Presentation: Valerie Mann
Fiber artist Valerie Mann will explore and fabricate a new body of work based on grief, both personal and global, during her Glen Arbor Arts Center residency June 12 – 25. Mann, a resident of Saline, Michigan, will combine and sew repurposed materials into sculptural pieces.
Each of the GAAC’s artist-residents offer a conversational presentation at the end of their stay. The presentations begin at noon at the GAAC. They are free, and open to the public. On June 24 Mann will discuss her multilayered works that explore color, shape, negative space and shadows.
Since the 1990s, the GAAC has welcomed visiting artists who want to immerse themselves in their work. The GAAC’s AIR program offers up to seven, creative practitioners a two-week respite from their daily lives in order to focus on a new idea that needs space, or to develop an on-going project.
