Flagler College art professor Don Martin has been chosen for a 2012 summer residency fellowship at the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts in Rabun Gap, Ga.
“The work I hope to create during the fellowship will focus on printmaking and book arts, two courses I regularly teach at Flagler,” said Martin. “In addition, the potential opportunity to share this experience with artists from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines only adds to my anticipation to of this fellowship."
The Hambidge Center was established in 1934 as a retreat for creative individuals from the visual arts, writing and music as a place of solitude and support for their creative endeavors. Hambidge accepts seven fellows at any one time and houses them in individual studio/cottages during their stay at the center. The fellowship supports interaction and an exchange of ideas among artists from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines.
“The opportunity to have an uninterrupted time to focus on my art work in such a beautiful natural setting is a great privilege,” said Martin. “My artwork focuses on my personal relationship with nature so the location of this fellowship is particularly important to me.”
