Miami-based visual artists Juan Ledesma and Cornelius Tulloch got more than they bargained for when they were accepted to do an artists residency at Anderson Ranch this winter.
“I’m going to be completely honest: It didn’t occur to me that I was going to be here during the winter,” Ledesma said with a laugh. “I have friends that have come here in years past. It looked like such a such an incredible space and opportunity. I should have known they came in the winter because I saw those pictures, but for some reason, that didn’t click until after I was given the opportunity to come in. I had to borrow an appropriate coat.”
He and Tulloch spent five weeks at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village as part of Oolite Arts’ Home + Away travel residency program, in which each artist received a stipend, coverage of their accommodations, and travel costs along with studio visits with master artists.
