2013 ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE (AiR)
Program Dates: May 13 - June 24th
Working primarily in cut paper, printmaking, animation, and installation, Kathleen Scott Moore creates pieces that deal with the ideas of memory, mortality, and their intrinsic connection. Along with the residency at Spiro Arts, she has been an artist-in-residence at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Brush Creek Arts Foundation, Stonehouse Center for the Contemporary Arts, and Art342. Originally from Sioux City, Iowa, Kathleen received her BFA from the University of Iowa and her MFA in Printmaking from Arizona State University in 2011. She has been a Visiting Artist at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, a Visiting Artist-in-Residence at Vermillion Editions Limited in Amarillo, Texas, and has exhibited throughout the United States. At Spiro Arts, Kathleen plans to create a cut paper stop-motion animation set in the landscape of the West and an installation comprised of moving shadows and projections.
Allison Lacher creates installation environments and objects that look to be facing the fate of growing up but are reluctant to do so, in which she sees a reflection of contemporary culture. She pursues visual narratives that have multiple interpretations, and that actively strive to linger between naiveté and experience. She holds an MFA in sculpture from Indiana University and a BFA from Edinboro University. She has received multiple awards from the Illinois Arts Council including the competitive Artist Fellowship Award. Select exhibition venues include Future Tenant of Carnegie Mellon University, Southeastern Louisiana University’s Center for Contemporary Art, Franconia Sculpture Park, and Grounds for Sculpture. She has been and Artist in Residence with the Prairie Center of the Arts as well as a Fellowship Resident with Vermont Studio Center. During her residency with Sprio Arts, Allison will respond to site visits in Salt Lake City, where she once lived, as well as the Park City landscape to aid in the creation of multiple site-specific, ephemeral works and sculptural objects.
Heather Brammeier is an oil painter whose practice has expanded to include constructing paintings in space with fabric and objects. Her imagery is biomorphic abstraction, with forays into invented landscape. Brammeier has had solo exhibitions in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, and South Carolina, and she is represented by Moberg Gallery in Des Moines, Iowa. Artist residencies enrich Brammeier’s practice; she has been a fellow at The Banff Centre, Yaddo, Byrdcliffe, The Hambidge Center, and others. Brammeier is Associate Professor of Art at Bradley University, in Peoria, Illinois. At Spiro Arts, Brammeier will be completing a chandelier made of men’s button-down shirts as well as other fabric constructions and oil paintings.
