Kala Gallery is proud to present Where Water Comes Together With Other Water - Residency Projects: New Work by 2012-2013 Kala Fellows, featuring new work by our 2012-2013 Fellowship artists. The exhibition includes Kala Fellows Stella Ebner, Chris Fraser, Koo Kyung Sook, Margaret Leininger, Colin James Lyons, Sanaz Mazinani, Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo, Clint Wilson and Noah Wilson. The exhibition presents new work created during the Fellows' studio residencies in a wide array of media and processes including social engagement projects with fiber art, sculpture, silkscreen and intaglio prints, drawings, mixed media, photograms, photography and video installations. The title of the exhibition comes from the name of a poem by Raymond Carver. As Carver does, these artists illustrate how their personal histories and affinities play out in their work, inevitably reflecting the uniqueness of their artistic paths—composed as they are of the traces of each leg of their journey—from where they began, to where they are now.
Kala Fellowships are awarded annually to nine innovative artists working in printmaking, photography, book arts, installation, video and digital media. Social practice projects have been included for the first time in Kala's 2012-2013 Fellowship residencies. Fellowship artists are selected from a competitive field of applicants from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. Recipient artists receive a financial award and up to a six-month residency at Kala’s studio facility followed by an exhibition of their new work.
Kala’s Fellows for 2012-2013 were selected by Kala Directors in association with juror Dr. Stephanie Hanor, Director at Mills College Art Museum.
