Plum Lime Residency: Finalists Exhibition

January 5 - 25, 2023
Overview
THIS WINTER'S OPEN CALL FOR THE NYC CRIT CLUB'S PLUM LIME RESIDENCY DREW OVER 200 APPLICANTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD WITH A WIDE RANGE OF DISCIPLINES, FORMATIVE BACKGROUNDS AND AESTHETIC VIEWPOINTS. SELECTING 19 ARTISTS FROM SUCH A LARGE POOL OF TALENT WAS, FOR ME, BOTH EXHILARATING AND EMOTIONALLY DRAINING.  AS AN ARTIST MYSELF, I UNDERSTOOD THE PERSONAL INVESTMENT EACH ARTIST MADE IN CREATING THEIR WORK, AND GIVEN THE LEVEL OF QUALITY I WAS PRESENTED WITH, IT MADE THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS INCREDIBLY CHALLENGING. IN THE END, I BELIEVE THIS SHOW REFLECTS THE INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY THE PLUM LIME RESIDENCY AFFORDS ARTISTS AND THE CALIBER OF ARTISTS IT ATTRACTS. I WANT TO THANK CATHERINE HAGGARTY FOR INVITING ME TO JURY. IT WAS MY HONOR TO SELECT CASEY BADEN AS THE WINTER 2023 PLUM LIME RESIDENT, AS WELL AS THE RUNNERS-UP, ALL OF WHOM ARE FEATURED IN THIS EXHIBITION. I ALSO WANTED TO THANK EVERY ARTIST WHO APPLIED AND WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO SUBMIT THEIR WORKS.       -MEPAINTSME

 

ABOUT THE PLUM LINE RESIDENCY

Offered by the NYC Crit Club, the Plum Lime Residency provides artists with a 550 sq. ft. private studio in Bushwick (Brooklyn, NY) for six-weeks to create a new body of work or continue their work in a focused and ambitious way. The studio space is where all in person events and courses are held during the year for NYC Crit Club. The residency is offered biannually in the winter and summer.
