Windgate ITE Open Studio Day, in memory of Lee Bender

July 16, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

The public is invited into the Windgate ITE Residents’ shop for demonstrations and discussion surrounding work as part of the 2016 Windgate ITE International Residency Program. This event takes place at the University of the Arts (UArts) Wood Working Department in Anderson Hall, 333 South Broad Street, 4th Floor, Room 411. The event will occur on Saturday, July 16, 2016 from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm. This 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.

2016 marks the 21st year for the international residency program and the 30th year for the Center as a nonprofit in Philadelphia. In recognition of the Center’s long partnership with UArts, we have established the opportunity for a student to participate as a Windgate ITE Resident who will join five artists, a scholar and a photojournalist.

The Windgate ITE Resident Fellows live, travel, and work independently and collaboratively in an intensive, 10-week program that began June 4, 2016. Typical activities include visits to local and regional museums, nature areas, historic sites, and public and private collections of art. The residency culminates in a major exhibition of their artwork, allTURNatives: Form + Spirit, opening August 5, and a gallery talk with the Resident Fellow’s the following day, Saturday, August 6, 10 am – 12 pm. Sponsored and programmed by The Center for Art in Wood, and hosted by our partner, UArts, the residency will focus on research, discussions, studio work, experiments and collaborations.

This year’s Open Studio Day is a DesignPhiladelphia event.NAKED DP LOGO
