Past Residents & Quotes

“To be chosen for the Artist’s Book residency was such a privilege. As an emerging artist, to be recognized as having potential and ability to be able to deliver on such an ambitious project was a great opportunity. The support WSW provides is both practical and financially amazing. The staff at WSW is wonderful— giving advice and imparting their extensive knowledge. It was amazing to come to such a wonderful community and be in an environment away from usual commitments and distractions in order to be fully immersed and encouraged in my project.”
