Announcing Crow's Shadow
2016 Golden Spot
RESIDENCY AWARDEES

Crow's Shadow 2016 Golden Spot Residency Award Winners (l-r): Brenda Mallory, Samatha Wall, and Ryan Pierce.

Crow's Shadow is excited to share the news of our 2016 Golden Spot award recipients:  Brenda Mallory, Samantha Wall, and Ryan Pierce.

Funded by the generous support of The Ford Family Foundation, the annual Golden Spot Awards began in 2010 to support Oregon-based artist residencies at Crow’s Shadow. Each of these artists will spend two weeks at Crow’s Shadow developing limited-edition prints, which will be hand-pulled by Crow’s Shadow’s Tamarind-trained Master Printer, Frank Janzen. The final prints will enter the Crow’s Shadow permanent collection. In previous years prints from the Golden Spot residencies have traveled extensively to galleries and cultural institutions around the region and nationally.
 
Brenda Mallory (Cherokee Nation) is primarily known as an installation artist, mining natural materials and mimicking organic processes with her generative sculptural installations. Texture and repeated rhythmic forms are instrumental to Mallory’s abstract compositions. A long-time Portland resident, Mallory’s artwork has recently begun to garner more national attention, particularly as a recipient of a 2015 Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship in Indianapolis. Mallory has attended multiple residencies, including a 2013 Residency in Sculpture at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado, and a 2015 GLEAN Residency in Portland Oregon; she is represented in Portland by Butters Gallery. Mallory’s 2016 Golden Spot Residency will be her first time working at Crow’s Shadow.
 
Portland-based Samantha Wall graduated with an MFA in Visual Studies in 2011 from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Originally from Seoul, South Korea, Wall’s images explore identity through the push and pull of cultural diaspora and human interconnectedness. Her large-scale monochromatic figure drawings, and particularly portraiture, tend to feature meticulously drawn women who embody Wall’s interest in navigating multicultural experiences. Over the last few years Wall has shown in multiple exhibitions throughout the Northwest, as well as several international exhibitions. She is represented in Portland by Laura Russo Gallery; this will be her first visit to Crow’s Shadow.     
 
Ryan Pierce is one of the founding members of Signal Fire, a wilderness residency program based in Oregon. Pierce’s paintings draw on his intense interest in ecology and natural systems. Often working on large-scale canvases his subjects allude to mythologies, or suggest narrative through taxonomical arrangements. He has attended residencies from regional centers such as Caldera in Sisters, Oregon; Sitka Center for Art & Ecolgy in Cascade Head, Oregon; and as far-flung as Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder in Trondheim, Norway. His work has been featured in many national and international exhibitions; he is represented by Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland, Oregon. Pierce’s 2016 residency at Crow’s Shadow will mark his first time working in our studios.
