WHY THE CAPS AND EXCLAMATIONS?!?!
BECAUSE I'M VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE I WAS ACCEPTED INTO THE SPRATX IGNITE ARTIST IN RESIDENCY PROGRAM IN AUSTIN, TX!!
As part of the residency Spratx provides artists with a (massive) studio space to create a body of work to be displayed at their gallery on 2400 E. Cesar Chavez St. in Austin, TX.
My solo show at the Spratx gallery will be April 20th, 2018 from 6 - 10pm
On top of the studio space the Spratx team opened up their chambers of resources for the artist to utilize, ask questions, and provide mentorship to the artist as they traverse this one-two month long residency.
This is a huge honor to be accepted as an artist in residence
I have been following Spratx for years through their various social media outlets and website so to not only have the opportunity to meet the team but to be able to spend time with the individuals behind the wheels provides me with an immense upgrade in knowledge to understanding what it takes to be a contemporary artist in todays art scene
I'm no wordsmith, there's a reason I make visual art and dont write songs, so I cant 100% explain how excited I am for this opportunity without rambling. So what Im trying to get at is I'm extremely honored and cant thank the Spratx team enough for this opportunity
With no time wasted I got to work in the studio
Throughout this residency Ill be providing studio updates on my blog as well as posting behind the scene shots and paint-adventures on my instagram @STETZISM
Hope to see you all April 20th at my opening!!!
