On August 3rd, I relocated to Snug Harbor Cultural Center's red cottage as a artist in their Snug Harbor Artist Residency Program (SHARP). During the two month residency, I created a series of stories and adventures through ink, photography, sharpies and paint; then curated and installed my artwork in a 1,500 sq. foot gallery
From October 3rd to November 15th, I presented these illustrations and photographs at my first solo exhibition The Adventures of Ashley-Simone, in the Newhouse Center of Contemporary Art (Staten Island). These are the photos of the artwork.
P.S. Special thanks to Snug Harbor Cultural Center and the Van Lier Fellowship for the opportunity, space, and gallery; Jillian; Hilary and Harbor Eats for the hospitality.
