The White Leaves Artist Residency Program annually awards 2-3 artists the unique opportunity to concentrate on their work in the isolated, rural environment of the high desert landscape near El Rito, New Mexico. Open to artists working in all mediums who wish to develop or complete a project of their choosing, residency length ranges from 10-21 days during either a Fall (Sept-Nov) or Spring (April-June) session. Accommodations include a small private cabin with solar power and potable water, kitchen and shower access with additional outbuilding workspaces available based upon the needs of the artist. Residents also receive an edition of archival pigment prints of work that was created during their stay (sponsored by Frontier Fine Art Printing).
I’m delighted to announce that Abigail Smith and myself are small business owners:

Full color artwork. Purple shell cassettes, painstakingly dubbed in real-time for the sake of hi-fidelity. Edition of 50 copies.
Jeremy Kennedy & Yosuke Kitazawa - "agenda (in bold)" Electronic interventions & deconstructed guitar passages intermingle within a state of hypnagogia in this Los Angeles pairing's debut album. Discerning patience and deep listening are accentuated throughout the duo's improvisational reporting from the front line. 29 minutes long. Full color artwork. Dubbed in real-time for fidelity's sake. Edition of 50 copies.
