Alumni Happenings
We recently talked with visual artist Steven Walker, who was in residence in August of 2018. 

Steven, tell us about any recent award, grant or artistic opportunity that you have had recently.
I am pleased to report that the art world has been very kind to me.  Last year I received two Awards of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America.  Most recently I had the pleasure of having one of my pieces juried into the Oil Painters of America national show in Utah.

This past September I instructed my first oil painting workshop in Kilarney, Ireland with twelve eager students.

How has your time and studio experiences at Good Hart Artist Residency influenced your practice since your residency there in 2018?

I didn't know it then but the time that I spent at the Good Hart Artist Residency allowed me the comfort of being more patient with myself and my process.

What about Northern Michigan has stuck with you since your time there?
I think the one thing that stuck with me about my time in Northern Michigan was that there seemed to be an overwhelming effort to protect the parks and the land around the area which was very refreshing.

What are the upcoming projects that you are excited about right now?

This April I was fortunate enough to complete my first show of figurative works for the Glave Kocen Gallery in Richmond, VA.  It's a big departure from my traditional landscapes so I'm hoping that it is well received.

What would you share with an artist heading to Good Hart Artist Residency this year or considering applying in the future?

If you're used to having a lot of disruptions throughout the day, brace yourself for some extreme peace, quiet and beauty.


Other Alumni Happenings
Susan Moss (May 2018)

Susan will be running a sketchbook workshop at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Oregon this July.…/the-creative-sketchbook
A sketchbook is a way to explore what’s unique about how you see and respond. This workshop uses a sketchbook to enhance your ability to generate ideas and think critically about your work. We’ll begin with a non-evaluative approach, working with little planning, responding to mark-making and writing prompts. Varied materials – gouache, colored pens, markers – will be used to develop an open, reflective sketchbook practice. We’ll also consider how to articulate and refine ideas for subsequent studio work.
