Spring 2011 Resident Artists Arrive at Anderson Ranch
Snowmass Village, CO – Anderson Ranch welcomes 13 artists from around the world for the Spring 2011 Artists’ Residency program (a 10-week intensive residency that runs February 1-April 13, 2011)
Awarded annually to 28 artists, finalists are chosen by an independent jury of notable working artists from a highly competitive pool on the basis of artistic merit. The Residency Program is offered in the fall and the spring, during which time residents live and work at Anderson Ranch for approximately 10 weeks each term. The Anderson Ranch Artists’ Residency Program is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established visual artists. While in residence, all residents share in an established community of interaction, conceptual development and intense production of work.
A mix of both emerging and established artists, the residents consist of visual artists working in one or more of the following media: ceramics, digital media, photography, furniture design, woodworking, painting, drawing, installation, mixed media, printmaking and sculpture. Residents are encouraged to pursue a multidisciplinary approach toward their work while at the Ranch. 
The Spring 2011 residents represent a diverse collection of artists and are comprised by the following individuals:
