On the day after my arrival, the weekly Mon. critique gave me an opportunity to see what the other AIR’s were doing and gave me a chance to introduce my own work. It was clear that CAC had drawn each and every artist because of the uniqueness of the space. Between each artist I could connect a thread of common ideas, philosophies, and sensitivity to detail with poetic use of imagery through different mediums. This introduction made me very eager to see how the rest of the residency and interactions with everyone would unfold.
