Greensboro Project Space Presents its Inaugural Cohort for its new Student Residency Program

Summer Studios: Arts on Site!

Supporting UNCG student artists as they forge new directions in their creative practices over a two-week incubation period


Session #1: May 8 – 20, 2023*

Public Open Studio: Friday, May 12th | 12-5P

Public Open Studio: Tuesday, May 16th | 12-3P

Closing Open House: Friday, May 19th | 6-8P


Designed to support UNCG undergraduate student artists (BA + BFA) striving to develop, adapt, and/or reinvent their creative process and to promote artistic growth and development, artists are afforded two-weeks of uninterrupted research and development, coupled with financial support and public presentational platforms to share their creative work.

The students selected represented those proposals who best considered how to use this residency as a way to work towards new or expanded approaches in their making practices. We are pleased to accept the following artists into this summer’s program and to contribute to new directions in their artistic practice.


Session #1 Artists in Residence (May 8-20, 2023)

Oliver Coria (he/him; sculpture) will experiment with creating an installation by covering the ceiling, floor, walls, and symbolically appropriate objects with the artificial grass, in a body of work called “American Homeowners Association,” an exposition of obsessive appearances through obsessive lawn care.

Anna (AK) Deese (any except she/her; art history/social practice) will use social practice methodologies to meet with locals and listen to their stories, while simultaneously drawing charcoal and pastel portraits of them.

Ernest Kroi (he/him; drawing/painting) will begin working on writing and illustrating a series of three children’s stories about the absurd but morally innocent adventures of Cat and Owl, two regally and eccentrically clad friends who live in a treehouse in the forest of Clovernook above the seafaring town of Doverbrook.

Amiah Jones (she/her; painting) will work with a model to paint two sides of the same person as a diptych. The content of each side will be determined by the model, rather than the artist, based on how they choose to represent themselves.


*Note: the gallery will not be open during regular public hours  these two weeks; the gallery will only be open during the above dates/times for public engagement events

This student opportunity was made possible by our Founding Sponsor, Maggie Triplett.
