Ursula Gullow
Residency: July 3 – August 3, 2017
Exhibition: August 4 – September 30, 2017

Artspace welcomes Ursula Gullow who will work in the Upfront Gallery and Lobby during her residency. Gullow states, “My background in sociology informs a visual investigation into the individual’s relationship to themselves, each other and their landscape. I emphasize the in-between spaces of story-telling and bodies in motion. I am conceptually swayed by political theory and popular media.”

Ursula Gullow was a recipient of the North Carolina Regional Artist Project Grant in 2009 and Penland School of Craft’s Williams and Womble Scholarship in 2014. Venues for her solo exhibitions include PUSH Gallery in Asheville, NC, Malcolm E. Blowers Gallery at UNC in Asheville, and Anthology Film Archives in New York City. Her paintings are exhibited at Haen Gallery in downtown Asheville. She was an artist-in-residence with The Gil-Society in Akureyri, Iceland in 2005 and at Spark Box Studio in Picton, Canada in August, 2016. Gullow teaches painting and design classes at A-B Technical Community College and was named “Outstanding Continuing Education Instructor of 2014.”

Lile Stephens’ residency, presented by PNC and located in Artspace’s Upfront Gallery, will explore our cultural and personal relationship to flight. Stephens explains, “Human flight is one of the most ‘unnatural’ yet ubiquitous uses of technology.” He is interested in grappling with the anxiety and fear we associate with commercial flight, drone flight and mythological flight. During his residency, Stephens will conduct a workshop where students will learn how to pilot small aircraft in addition to building a quadcopter drone from the ground up.

She is looking for set designers, costume makers and performers of all skill levels and will teach basic skills using simple materials including fabric, paint, cardboard and newspaper. Ages 12-80 are welcome to participate.

Warren will host open studio periods and performance practices several days a week throughout the month of May, and a final rehearsal and shoot at the end of the month.
