All of the alumni artists are now working on their projects and welcome visitors to The Galleries at CCBC Essex to speak with them or observe as they create their artwork. Visitors can watch an artist’s work develop over the life of the exhibition and learn about their techniques, processes and artistic inspirations. At the Sept. 21st reception, all of the artwork created during the residency will be on public display.
