Past Residents Update

With 15 years of residents, we have a lot of artists to keep an eye on. Here are just a few:

Mia Cross, Resident in 2016

Deborah Redwood, Resident in 2018

“Species Nova” sold at Kangaroo Valley

“After arriving back [in Australia] from the most extraordinary residency in Kenya, things just kept moving on.  First there was the North Sydney Art Prize for which I presented the work ‘Cocoons’.  Following this, a Sydney group ‘Culture at Work’ wanted to purchase one.  Then I had a solo exhibition at Watts gallery in Newcastle, ‘A Flock, A herd.’  I also exhibited at Kangaroo Valley and sold several works.  (Deborah Redwood’s website)

This summer, artist Brett Gamache will be renting the Goetemann Gallery at 37 Rocky Neck Ave. He’ll be selling some of the paintings of Gordon Goetemann (namesake of the residency program) and Gordon’s wife Judy, as well as his own work. According to Brett, “We are planning to open on Sunday evening, June 16th. Throughout the week the gallery will be open by appointment (207-351-7605) and we hope to open most Friday & Sat evenings throughout the summer.” (Brett Gamache’s website)

Artists Selected for 2019

The five artists and teacher for the 2019 Goetemann Artist Residency program have been selected. It wasn’t easy! See them all here

We had more than 60 applicants this year for the positions. Most were for the Artist openings, but 10 were for the Environmental/Installation Artist spot, which is growing nicely. This is a program that’s only a few years old, so we were very glad to see so many wonderful artists apply.

While some artist residencies cater to a group at a time, ours lets the selected artist be the focus of our attention for the month. The entire Residency Committee lends a hand, from helping to get supplies to setting up the space for talks.

New this year are Sponsorship opportunities to help defray the cost. Special thanks to Goeffrey H. Richon Co and to Karen Ristuben to stepping forward to help out!
