Jerome Residency 2007–2008

Highpoint is pleased to announce the recipients of its fifth Jerome Emerging Printmakers’ Residency: Pamela Carberry, Andy Morien, and Kirsten Peterson. These residents will receive nine months of access to Highpoint’s fully equipped printmaking shop as well as technical support, critiques with arts professionals, and the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment that encourages experimentation and growth. The program will conclude with a group exhibition featuring works created by the artists at Highpoint. It will open May 30, 2008—details to come as the date approaches.
The residency, funded with a generous grant from the Jerome Foundation, is open to emerging Minnesota artists—defined here as artists who show significant potential, yet have not received a commensurate amount of professional accomplishment or recognition. The three new residents were selected on the basis of their dedication, interest, and potential in printmaking and the artistic merit of their work.
Special thanks to this year’s panel of jurors: Sally Johnson, Director, Groveland Gallery; Clarence Morgan, Art Department Chair and Drawing and Painting Professor, University of Minnesota; and Kris Douglas, Chief Curator, Rochester Art Center.
Pamela Carberry plans to use intaglio and collograph processes to investigate local landscapes and her own physical and emotional ties to those landscapes. She received her MFA in printmaking and drawing from Kent State University in 2007.
Andy Morien will expand his practice in the printshop while exploring the conceptual distinction between what is real or unique and what is simulated or mass-produced. He graduated from MCAD in 2007 with a concentration in fine art studio work.
Kirsten Peterson will integrate screenprinting into an existing project called Infrastructure, in which she depicts housing structures and architectural interiors. She received her BFA in drawing from MCAD in 2003 and her MFA in painting from the University of Minnesota in 2006. Peterson currently serves as an adjunct instructor at MCAD and the College of Visual Arts.
