Pictured above from left to right:  Alexandra Wiesenfeld, a painter from Los Angeles via Montana; Katie Kahn, a painter from Chicago; Maria Rucker, a stone sculptor from Munich, Germany; Walter Cotten, a photographer from Los Angeles; and Luis Serrano, a visiting painter from Los Angeles. The artists are pictured on the steps of an abandoned stone schoolhouse located some 20 miles northeast of Roswell.  The site was also found interesting by former artist-in-residence Karen Aqua, a filmmaker from Boston.  She utilized the freestanding arches in front of the schoolhouse (not pictured) in a 30-second short for Sesame Street in 1992.

Walter Cotten's photographic installation from his exhibition "mnemonica" at the Roswell Museum and Art Center in 2001.  This wall installation consisted of 29 color photos and metal frames, 8'x7'.

Katie Kahn works on a painting in her studio.  Near the end of her residency in June 2000, Katie showed work at the Roswell Museum and Art Center in an exhibition entitled "Heaven and Hell".

Alexandra Wiesenfeld's "Stuffed Porm," charcoal and pigment on paper, 52"x64".  After her residency, Alex exhibited this work at the Dactyl Foundation for the Arts and Humanities in New York.  The exhibition was entitled "The Look of Love".

Maria Rucker, a stone sculptor from Germany, puts the finishing touches on "Squid," made of Pacos Vally alabaster, 49"x18"x12".

The south side of House E and its porch flanked by studios and facing a spacious field full of natural vegetation and, in wet Spring seasons, colorful wildflowers.

 

In the summer of 2000, the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program played host for six weeks to visiting artist Luis Serrano and his wife Ana from Los Angeles. Luis is originally from Ecuador and his wife from Cuba. Luis' short stay was part of our attempt to capitalize on vacancies at the facility while providing a small "gift of time" to a deserving artist.

After an exciting exhibition at Roswell Museum and Art Center, Katie Kahn completed her residency and returned to Chicago. But not before daughters Marina and Hannah, and neighbor Sienna Fleming, walked down the stage with the grand prize at the Roswell Museum and Art Center's Alien Costume contest.

The Artist-in-Residence Program again strengthened our connection with other area arts-based organizations by housing the Pecos Valley Potters Guild's guest ceramic artist Nancy Jacobson during her workshop at the Roswell Museum and Art Center.
