(HOUSTON,TX) June 16, 2022 – This summer, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is pleased to present In Residence: 15th Edition, an exhibition celebrating the Artist Residency Program, which has supported artists working in the field of craft for more than two decades. The show features work in clay, metal, and fiber by 2021-2022 resident artists, Joan Clare Brown, Kelly Dzioba, Priscilla Dobler Dzul, Jihye Han, Chenlu Hou, Carl Johnson, Naomi Peterson, Kerianne Quick, Nash Quinn, and Stephanie J. Woods.
The Artist Residency Program at HCCC gives resident artists a space for creative exploration, exchange, and collaboration with other artists, arts professionals, and the public. HCCC Curatorial Fellow Cydney Elaine Pickens notes, “What separates In Residence: 15th Edition from its predecessors is the collaboration among residents. While some of these artists had the opportunity to create collaboratively in person, others were in conversation about how their practices may align or differ, and each was uniquely impacted by their residency here in Houston.”
