Artspace welcomes Amy Masters as the 2015 Summer Artist-in-Residence. For the month of July, Masters will welcome visitors to her temporary studio, Artspace’s Gallery One.

During her month-long residency, Amy Masters will create a life-size, fiber putt-putt course based on her recent experiences in Gatlinburg, TN. She is interested in conflating tourist and craft culture and will transform Gallery One into a playful interactive installation.

Masters will teach a Connect & Create family workshop on Saturday, June 18. Register for Hula Hoop Rugs today!

Her work utilizes fiber-based sculpture, installation, photographic documentation, and performance for investigating traditions in storytelling, selective memory, and theories behind play.

Amy Masters received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textiles Design from the University of Kansas in 2009. In the fall of 2013, she completed her graduate studies in Fibers at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. Amy recently completed a three-month artist-in-residence program at the Wassaic Art Project in Wassaic, NY, as well as being a Denbo Fellow at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Silver Spring, MD. She is currently an artist-in-residence at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN.
