We are delighted to be able to announce the recipients of the four Bullseye Glass Company scholarships as Ian Palfrey, Tali Grinshpan, Mary Louise White and Sarah Rose.
Sarah and Mary Louise will be attending our ‘Shifting Boundaries’ Visiting Artist Workshop with Silvia Levenson in August. In this workshop, participants will be guided by Silvia as they develop their own language using glass as a narrative medium.
Tali and Ian will be attending our ‘Hot Printing’ Visiting Artist Workshop with Anne Petters where participants will be introduced to a specific glass frit technique which translates the idea of intaglio printing into a sculptural kiln forming process.
When asked what Bullseye look for in Scholarship Applicants, Bullseye Projects Curator, Michael Endo comments:
“Bullseye Projects seeks to promote the work of artists who primarily use kilnformed glass. In particular, Bullseye seeks out work and artists who are pushing the boundaries of the material aesthetically, technically, and conceptually.”
North Lands Creative Director, Karen Phillips comments:
“We are very grateful to Bullseye Glass Company for supporting our Visiting Artist Workshop programme with these four scholarships. We are looking forward to welcoming our class leaders and participants to North Lands this summer.”
When asked why Bullseye supports our Visiting Artist Workshop programme, Endo comments:
“The programme at North Lands Creative provides emerging artists with the opportunity to learn from working artists who are, as the name implies, masters of their craft. This is a process of learning that predates university education, it is direct, focused, transformative, and rare.”
