The 2017 Bresler Resident artists, Maria-Theresa Fernandes, Katie Kehoe, and Krista Caballero, present new work created during their residencies at VisArts. All three artists were selected by a review panel and received a free studio space for four months to develop project proposals that focused on social practice, community art, and/or performance. The nature of their projects required a dynamic mix of research, collaboration, physical construction, and public interaction. From textile and stitch works that poetically connect to the history of Rockville, to a collection of floatation devices used as catalysts for conversations, to a dynamic intermedia installation that includes a large-scale Kaiserpanorama to focus on endangered and extinct bird species, the work of this year’s Bresler Resident artists is not only brilliantly inventive, but socially and environmentally aware.
