PNCA Faculty and Alumna Selected for Prestigious Printmaking Residency
July 22, 2012
Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts honors MFA in Visual Studies Chair Arnold J. Kemp and PNCA alumna Pat Boas with a “Golden Spot” residency. The residency, made possible with funding from The Ford Family Foundation, supports Oregon mid-career visual artists.
These two PNCA community members are no stranger to honors and accolades. Kemp was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to study at the Adrian Piper Research Archive in Berlin. Boas was named the 2012 Bonnie Bronson Fellow.
The mission of Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts is to provide educational, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. With an emphasis on contemporary, fine-art printmaking, they also function as a venue to practice traditional Native American art practices, weaving, bead working and regalia making, of the Plateau region. Located near Pendleton, Oregon, Crow’s Shadow was founded by James Lavadour and friends in 1992.
The “Golden Spot” residency program is being funded through a grant from The Ford Family Foundation. Crow’s Shadow offers three two-week printmaking residencies for Oregon mid-career visual artists. Artists in residence are guided by a Tamarind Master Printer to create limited editions of fine-art, hand-pulled prints that Crow’s Shadow publishes, exhibits and sells.
