Kirk Newman Art School Residents – Part II

April 4 at 12:00 pm

The Kirk Newman Art School Post-Baccalaureate Program is in its seventh year, and more than 50 artists have completed the program.The nine-month residency is designed for aspiring artists who want to grow and strengthen their art practice in a supportive community, with access to professional studio facilities and guidance. At each of these ARTbreaks, KIA guests will hear from the KNAS residents about their experiences and artistic pursuits.

Rose Bogard makes functional ceramics that explore different techniques of altering clay to mimic fabric-like forms and surface textures. Qynce B. Chumley is a he/him lesbian, but only when they’re printmaking. They make comics, zines, prints, and trouble. Jorence Quiambao graduated from Kalamazoo College, where they studied Studio Art and Art History, with honors in 2022. Using queer and comic book aesthetics, their watercolor paintings narrate Filipinx mythos and folklore while also recentering and decolonizing these figures.
