Thank you...and a summer residency at Pittsburgh Society for Contemporary Craft! May 11, 2014 21:06

Thank you so much for everyone that made Open Studios a huge success! I had so much fun talking with all of you and showing you what I've been up to lately in the studio! I would not be here without you, and for that I am incredibly grateful! I wanted to take this opportunity to share my excitement with all of you who have supported me so much: I just officially accept a residency opportunity at the Pittsburgh Society for Contemporary Craft for this summer! So excited! It felt like fate when I received a call a few months ago gauging my interest in partaking in this amazing opportunity. I was seriously sitting in the studio, drawing my childhood home on a mug, and thinking about how much I missed home...when the phone rang. Fate indeed. I will be producing a line of work with the local area as the focal point - the Strip District. It is similar in many ways to where I have my studio in Fort Point - as it is being developed very rapidly. My work will document that development...and the amazing history of the area. I'm excited to show you what I come up with! Stay tuned! And if you happen to find yourself in Pittsburgh this summer, please do stop in and say hello! And thanks much! You made this possible! I get to live at home again in the house which I've probably drawn a million times! xoxo Nicole
