Residencies during COVID-19. What to expect?
ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
I’m a native San Franciscan and I completed an MFA in Sculpture at the Academy of Art University in 2010, following a 1992 BFA in Illustration. I joined the faculty of the Academy’s Illustration Department in 1994, initially as Director of Illustration. I retired as Director of Digital Art Education Technology in 2020. Recently I have been exhibiting in galleries and studying Spanish.
Andrew Ordonez (b. 1991 Fort Worth, TX) is a visual artist living and working in Kansas City, Missouri. He received a BFA in painting from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2013. His studio practice currently explores the tension of cultural erasure and conservation through the use of aggregate stone materials such as sand, gravel, cement, and paper. Ordonez is a current visual artist resident at the Charlotte Street Foundation and a former artist resident at the Drugstore KC. He has recently featured photography and sculptural work at the Abrir Galeria, a virtual art gallery focused on collaborative practices and online accessibility. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States in galleries such as Monaco, 50/50 KC, Leedy-Voulkos Contemporary Art Center, H&R Block Artspace, Front/Space, Kiosk Gallery, the Coop Gallery, and G-CADD. Ordonez’s work was featured at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, TX for the 23rd annual YLA exhibition. In addition to his studio practice, he’s a visual arts instructor, and a Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional at Imagine That KC.
Dolan Bailey is a multidisciplinary artist focused on animation, drawing and painting. Her work explores femininity and intimacy in non-traditional ways. Dolan’s art produces windows into secret worlds and intimate, often lonely moments. She received a BFA in studio art and graphic design in New Orleans, Louisiana, and now works as an animator and artist in Brooklyn, New York.
Sargam Gupta is an Art Director by profession and an Illustrator at heart. As an artist, she finds inspiration from within, giving voice to relatable emotions using light-hearted surrealism and bold colors. As an Art Director, her work focuses on evolving brand identities and visualising their stories. Her work has spanned across India, USA, Canada, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and UK and she has worked with companies including Uber, Bumble and Apple. Born and raised in India, she is now based out of San Francisco.
Ximena Prieto is a Mexico-City born multimedia artist and writer creating installations, assemblages, and video pieces focused on rituals, formation of memory, and spaces of unresolved connection or desire.
Graduating from Gallatin, New York University, with a concentration on apocryphal texts and literary reinterpretation, and working under Hannah Beachler and Julie Taymor, she developed a sense of storytelling through objects and deconstructed or expanded myths, be they collective or personal. Her most recent project is a research-based installation combining film projection, sculptural work and fragmented use of sound, bending the separations of the familiar and novel through interpretive re-placement.
