Two Coats Resident Artist Gyan Shrosbree returns in October
This October, former Two Coats of Paint Resident Artist Gyan Shrosbree returns from Iowa for a week. “Since my last residency, I’ve been focused primarily on making huge tarp paintings that are less modular than the installations I made for the space last time,” Shrosbree wrote via email. “The last residency period definitely launched the work I am making today. I’m looking forward to installing it in the space, inviting people over, and having a thoughtful conversation around the new paintings–something I miss living so far from the city.”
Since her residency last year, Shrosbee has had her work included in quite a few shows, and she has two solo exhibitions scheduled before the end of the year: “Gyan Shrosbree Paintings,” at Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin; and “Tarp Studies by Gyan Shrosbree” at Haus Collective in San Antonio, Texas. Shrosbree is an Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at Maharishi University in Fairfield, Iowa. We’re looking forward to catching up with Gyan, and if you happen to see her around town, please give her a warm welcome.
