Lisa Beane, Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation Fellow, at work in her studio at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, in the spring of 2015.
This was Beans’s first time at VCCA and first residency experience.
“I had no idea what to expect, and I must say it was beyond anything I could imagine. My work is extremely difficult; it is deep and emotional. To go in and face it each day is challenging and to be in this peaceful place that buzzed with phenomenal creative energy was an incredible gift. The support and friendship from other Fellows helped sustain me in this demanding work.”
