Triple Base is pleased to announce a group show of new work created by artists in the 2009 J.B. Blunk Residency program. On display will be paintings by Lynne Riding, a large site-specific drawing by Alicia Escott, paper cast pieces by Julia Goodman, furniture, ceramics and a video installation by Max Lamb and ceramics and a publication by Gemma Holt.
Set in the midst of the Bishop Pine Nature Preserve in Inverness, California the J.B. Blunk Residency offers a home, studio and outdoor clearings for work. The home and studio, built by J.B. Blunk in 1959, with salvaged materials, suggest a certain lifestyle that is independent, sustainable and closely connected to the landscape. Because of J.B.'s profound connection to the surrounding environment the hope is that the residency program will foster work inspired by the site. The goal of the program is to provide emerging and established artists a serene environment for creative exploration that is inspired by living in nature and is reflected in the art practice.
This show is the first annual exhibition that Triple Base Gallery will host as part of their unique partnership with the J.B. Blunk Residency. Proceeds from sales of work in the exhibition will benefit the J.B. Blunk Residency program.
