Open Studio Artist in Residence

The Lyndon House Arts Center is pleased to announce the summer Artist in Residence (AIR), printmaker Brian Hitselberger.  This year will be the third AIR program providing a working artist the opportunity and studio space to dive in and develop a largescale project or full body of work.  In previous years, David Hale and Zane Cochran have been our resident professional artists.
Brian Hitselberger is an artist living and working in Athens and is an Associate Professor of Arts at Piedmont College in Demorest. His work has been exhibited at ATHICA in Athens, at {Poem88} in Atlanta, Dalton Gallery of Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Barbara Archer Gallery in Atlanta, The Contemporary in Atlanta, and Cabinet in Brooklyn, New York. He has held residencies at the Elsewhere Artists Collaborative, the HUB-BUB Arts Initiative, and the Hambidge Center for the Arts. He has received funding for his work from the Georgia Council for the Arts, the Willson Center for the Humanities, and the Andy Warhol Foundation. He received a BFA in Printmaking from Tulane University in 2005, and an MFA in Painting from the University of Georgia in 2010.  
“During my time in the Print Studio of the Lyndon House this summer I have ambitious plans to develop several bodies of work concurrently, all of which relate directly to my interest in print as a means of creating a unique image. In a suite of cut-paper monotypes, I intend to explore shape and color relationships as they relate directly to several of my recent works on canvas. Additionally, I will be utilizing monotype and relief processes to add layers and depth to some larger-format works on paper in that are in progress”  -Brian Hitselberger
Brian’s residency is supported by a faculty grant from Piedmont College.
Open studio visits available to the public will be scheduled throughout the summer to share the working process in this creative activity.
