We're very happy to welcome our newest artist in residence, Jaclyn Wright! Wright's residency will last from Monday, November 17 through Friday, December 19 in preparation for an upcoming solo exhibition at the Neon Heater gallery in Findlay, Ohio. The exhibition, titled "The Two-dimensional Shadow," is concerned with dystopias, surveillance, tracking, and web bugs. We'll be hosting a public event relating to these themes in early 2015, details to come.
