For artists-in-residence at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, five weeks goes by fast — too fast, almost.
“There’s not enough time at the end to do everything I wanted to do,” said filmmaker and photographer Jayme Gershen.
Gershen is one of 14 Miami-based artists participating in the 2021 Oolite Arts Home and Away residency at Anderson Ranch, which began Feb. 3 and runs through March 9.
Anderson Ranch provides housing, meals, studio space and access to its wide range of facilities and resources in Snowmass Village; Oolite Arts, an organization that supports visual artists in the Miami-Dade area, sponsors participants and provides an additional $2,500 unrestricted stipend for costs beyond the already-covered accommodations and travel.
(Part-time local Dennis Scholl, a filmmaker, art collector and philanthropist who splits his time between Aspen and Miami, is Oolite’s president and CEO and a longtime supporter of Anderson Ranch.)
