For the Tarble’s 2024 residency, visual artists Diane Christiansen and Jessie Mott will transform a gallery first into a working artists’ studio and then an exhibition space featuring the works created onsite. Visitors to the Tarble will be able to witness the artists’ collaborative and playful process in real time while they are working and then see the outcome of the project in their final exhibition in the same space. Drawing on each artist’s expertise working in the mental health field, as part of their residency they will lead a workshop focused on creative play for graduate students studying studio art and participate in a public panel on art and mental health.
