The Artist is In

Residency at Matteawan starts Jan. 1

Beacon artist Zachary Skinner begins a month-long residency at Matteawan Gallery on Jan. 1. This is the fourth year of the gallery’s Winter Residency program. Skinner will work most days and is creating a collaborative installation exploring the question if art can prompt effective social and ecological change.

The Geo-Co-Lab includes chalkboards hung alongside Skinner’s sculptures and work he is creating in the gallery. Visitors are invited to draw on chalkboards in response to the art as a social, performative and participatory component. Skinner is also creating a Wisdom Tent as a space for contemplation and reflection. The artist will give a talk on Sunday, Jan., 22 at 3 p.m. See
