We know how much artists love their studios, but sometimes you just need to get away. And we are! This summer Radiant Hall will be sending artists to beautiful Sedona, Arizona for summer residencies, now through August. Sedona Summer Colony Residencies include free rooms and meals on the beautiful, 300-acre campus of Verde Valley School, in partnership with the Sedona Arts Center and Carnegie Mellon University’s Master of Arts Management (MAM) program.
Special thanks to Kathryn Heideman, Assistant Dean of Arts and Entertainment Management at Heinz College and the College of Fine Arts at CMU. It was Kathryn who connected us to the Sedona Arts Center folks, with whom she's been working to launch a unique residency for arts managers.
For this inaugural Sedona Summer Colony Residency, we'll be sending seven Radiant Hallers, including our studio managers. If you're curious about their experiences, be sure to catch up with them when they get back!
Seth Clark is a Pittsburgh-based artist and designer. Abandoned and collapsing architecture has served as a central focus of his work for over four years. He earned his BFA in Graphic Design in 2008 from the Rhode Island School of Design.
Rebecca Harmon graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2012 with a sculpture concentrated Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her sculpture work largely explores memory and place through found objects and textile forms. Her prints focus on our connection to the natural world.
Bob Kubiak is a fine art photographer. He primarily utilizes low-fidelity equipment, such as plastic-lensed toy cameras or pinhole cameras, to produce the images in all of his conceptual photographic series. Bob holds a degree in Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University.
Ryan Lammie is the founder and executive director of Radiant Hall Studios. A sculptural painter, Lammie uses found objects, industrial materials, and domestic waste as source material for creating multi-dimensional monochromatic light-driven work.
Elizabeth Claire Rose earned her BA cum laude in Fine Art with a minor in Wilderness Studies from the University of Montana. She employs traditional methods of printmaking and photographic processes to create works on paper, illustrations, installations, and public art.
Sarah Shotland is the author of the novel Junkette (White Gorilla Press, 2014) and co-editor of the literary anthology Words without Walls: Writers on Addiction, Violence and Incarceration (Trinity University Press, 2015). An author and playwright, Shotland teaches in the MFA program at Chatham University.
Siegel works across diverse mediums and disciplines, including set design and socially engaged projects. By using cast off materials and images of mass production and mass culture, Siegel attempts to resist the systems that create them, endanger the natural world and destroy people. This contradiction enables his work to hold both humor and the pathos of our contemporary plight.
