2010 Stutz Artists Association Residency Winners Announced
The Stutz Artists Association is proud to announce the winners of the 2010-2011 Stutz Studio Residency Program, Brian Myers and Mallory Marty.
Valued at $6,000 per artist, the residency is one of the largest grants to an individual artist in the state.
Brian Myers earned his BFA in painting from Herron School of Art in 2002. In 2007 and 2008, respectively, the Arts Council of Indianapolis commissioned Myers to paint two large-scale public murals. More recently the Chicago O'Hare branch of the Intercontinental Hotel chain commissioned Myers to paint two large-scale works for their facility. Since 2007 Myers has been employed by the Herron School of Art and Design as a studio/shop technician and teaches foundation courses in drawing and painting.
Marty was born and raised in Fishers, IN and is a graduate of Purdue University with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts and Art History. She is a recipient of the Purdue Outstanding Senior in Fine Arts award. Marty's concentration is in painting and printmaking, specifically lithography and intaglio, while her current focus is on expanding her interactive mixed-media sculpture that incorporates her prints and paintings.
