The public is invited into the Windgate Fellows shop for discussion surrounding their work as part of the 2024 Windgate Arts Residency Program (WARP – Wood). This event will take place at NextFab located at 1800 North American Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122, on Saturday, July 13, 2024, from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm. This event is an opportunity to meet the resident fellows and hear about their concepts and works in progress, whether in wood, film, writing, or other documentation.

This summer marks the 28th year that the Museum has sponsored the international residency program. The Fellows live, travel, and work independently and collaboratively in an intensive, 8-week program from June 3 through August 2, 2024. Typical activities include visits to local and regional museums and public and private collections of art. The residency culminates in an exhibition of their artwork, opening Friday, August 2nd. The evening will begin with a gallery talk by the Resident Fellows, followed by a reception. Sponsored and programmed by the Museum for Art in Wood and hosted by our partner NextFab, the residency encourages research, discussions, studio work, experiments, and collaborations.
