- Upcoming Events
Through the Residency Program, the Red Poppy Art House has allows select artists, performers and curators to use our space as a residence for executing proposed creative projects. The ongoing creation of new work, with the often unpredictable turns and exchanges that occur when artists have time and space together, stand as perhaps the most impactful element in shaping the feeling and culture that ultimately characterizes the Red Poppy itself. While the Red Poppy’s Artist Residency Program does not provide a living space for the artist, it provides a living and growing space for the creative work.
Since its founding, the Red Poppy has maintained its Residency Program based on the following values:
Vitality of an Artistic Core: The presence of resident artists, the professional and personal informal relationships they bring, as much as the on-site development and public presentations of their work, constitute a continuity of creative dialog and exchange that defines the very nature of the Red Poppy as an artistic and cultural hub.
Exemplifying Cultural Diversity through the Arts: Recognizing that artists can be the forerunners of cultural and social transformation, the Red Poppy selects a balance of resident artists whose combined skills, inspiration, craft, and cultural roots, hold the capacity to demonstrate 9the extraordinary potential implicit within inter-cultural collaboration.
In addition to sharing these values, Red Poppy Artists in Residence have been encouraged to curate and/or participate in the Red Poppy’s Artist Salon Program. Artist Salon events present a great opportunity for the Resident Artists to facilitate a critique session or share their work(s) in progress.
What are Artist Salons?
Artist Salons are an integral part of the Red Poppy Art House’s programming, offering a casual, accessible, and experimental environment for artists and members of the community to share work and develop dialog around creative initiatives as well as social, cultural and political issues. These bi-monthly events began essentially as “Open Studio” nights, where artists-in-residence at the Red Poppy and other local people of varying backgrounds and disciplines would gather. Artist Salons now take on a range of formats, including but not limited to: film screenings, poetry readings, one night exhibitions, critique sessions, workshops, musical performances, lectures, etc.
Currently, we are re-examining our approach to the Residency Program. While we are not actively seeking applications at this time, we always welcome project submissions, and new ideas from artists. Please check back for updates on the program and direct all questions to email@example.com
“Mission Lacuax” was a past installation project by Red Poppy Artist in Residence, Claire Brant. The installation became part of a collaborative piece which featured three different groups of past Resident Artists. The photo to the right shows a piece of the project born from the collaboration of artists Marisa Aragona (photography), Claire Brandt (Mission Lascaux installation), Carolina Czechowska (dancer), and Embodiment Project featuring Jena McRae & Jen.Ay Anolin (performance).
