This exhibition will feature the work of five artists, working in a variety of disciplines, who have taken part in the Haystack Open Studio Residency. Established in 2013, this program provides two weeks of uninterrupted time and space for professional working artists to explore their work in a supportive community. The residency takes place annually, and is designed to foster artistic exploration at the highest level.

Participating artists:

Jody Burr
Fabio Fernández
Doug Johnston
George Mason

Haystack’s exhibition series is an outgrowth of the school ’s commitment to supporting the dynamic work being done by makers of contemporary craft and to the creative process implicit in that. These exhibitions are an incredible resource for the community—featuring work by internationally distinguished makers—and also provide an opportunity to learn about these makers’ creative process as well. Past exhibitions have included recycled and repaired Japanese textiles – to work by traditional artists from Northern New England – to works by artists whose creative process has been influenced by their time at, and association with, Haystack. The Center for Community Programs is open on Wednesday and Friday-Sunday from 1:00–5:00 p.m. throughout the summer season, with informal receptions held every other Sunday afternoon. From time to time, we also schedule visits by appointment. These events, free and open to the public, attract a cross section of island residents and summer visitors, as well as our workshop participants.
