Where did 2019 go? Seems like we were just jurying artists and, suddenly, there’s JJ Baker, our October artist, giving his closing talk.
Few residents have reached so deep into the community as JJ has. He gave our Monday life drawing group a class on drawing portraits:
He painted portraits of many of us in the community (each holding their “original JJ” at the closing talk):
He not only gave his closing talk, but stuck around an extra few days to host a pop-up gallery on Madfish Wharf.
Time to pack up, head home and get ready for next year. Bookmark this blog and our website home page, where there will be updates about the 2020 Residency application process by the end of the year.
