2020 GUILD HALL ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE ANNOUNCED

Established in 2016, Guild Hall’s AIR program offers early and/or mid-career artists the time and space to focus on their own artistic practice. Provided with free living space and a paid stipend, AIR allows artists the opportunity to actively research, creatively experiment, and continuously develop new ideas/concepts, all while exploring the historic artist colony of East Hampton.

In addition to a focus on individual practice and inquiry, residents have the opportunity to connect with celebrated artists and civic leaders at weekly salon dinners, receive mentorship from members of Guild Hall’s Academy of the Arts, and share their work with the community through invited school trips/visits and public discussions. The program culminates with an informal sharing of work collected and produced throughout the residency to an invited audience of local artists, civic leaders, and Guild Hall staff/board.

As a testimony to the importance of this program, Guild hall has been awarded a $10,000 Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support the 2020 Program. The Art Works funding category supports projects that focus on public engagement with, and access to, various forms of excellent art across the nation; the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence; learning in the arts at all stages of life; and the integration of the arts into the fabric of community life.

He received BAs from the University of Texas at Austin and an MFA in Playwriting from the Yale School of Drama; he has also been a Jerome Fellow at The Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis, MN. His work is a fusion of idealism and world-weariness and the tension that arises from holding both points of view simultaneously – theatrical narratives that are designed with the hope of creating experiences for an audience that gently confront the difficulties of life with a sense of wrecked wonder. His work has been seen on stages in New York, Connecticut, Minnesota, and Texas.

Maggie Royce is a Minneapolis-based artist working in cut-paper and ink drawing, stop motion animation, book arts, and graphic design. Using paper, ink, knife, and an established set of marks including abstracted hands, lines, and simple shapes, she creates self-reflective work as a means to develop empathetic relationships. Each element in her work is impulsive, permanent, and influences what will come next. After receiving her BA in Studio Arts from Augsburg University in 2015, Royce has exhibited in group shows, collaborated on music videos, and is currently preparing her first solo exhibition, titled then and here and all at once, a multimedia installation about the intersection of time and human emotion.

Jackson Gay, in collaboration with Steven Padla, New Neighborhood, Dan Butler and DMNDR, recently produced Filibustered and Unfiltered: America Reads the Mueller Report, the first 24-hour reading of the entire [redacted] Mueller Report in Queens, NY, which inspired more than a dozen other events across the country in the following weeks and months. Featured everywhere from the Los Angeles Times (“a live-theater summer sensation!”) to Breitbart News (“two thumbs down” and “the single most boring and pointless way to waste your time!”), the tidal wave of public readings reached its apex when it was name-checked in Congress during Robert Mueller’s nationally televised public testimony.

Daniel Vlcek is a multimedia artist, musician and producer best known for his geometrical paintings created by carving layer after layer of circular patterns using vinyl or CDs as stencils. By using a nostalgic object used for the mass reproduction of sound, Vlcek references industry, authenticity and such dichotomies as the invisible/visible, digital/analogue and handmade/machinemade. He often supplements his work with sound installations and works to create both sonic and spatial interventions with his painting. Vlcek also works with textile, utilizing nearly extinct and unique methods of mechanical weaving such as Aradecor and Artprotis. In doing so, Vlcek goes back to the liminal space between industrial production and one which, although mechanical, is still reliant on craftsmanship. He is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, the Czech Republic where he lives and works.
