ARTIST IN RESIDENCE | CORRINE LOOMIS DIETZ
Artist in Residence | Corrine Loomis Dietz
November 1-30, 2022
Corrine Loomis-Dietz received a BFA from CWU with concentrations in Painting and Photography. Influenced by the many modernist movements and investigates the abstract reality of paint and process. From 1999 – 2022, Corrine had been a contract artist for GOLDEN Artist Colors, teaching and lecturing about acrylic paint systems, throughout the Northwest. This association with modern materials directly influences her work on many levels. Currently, Corrine directs her energies to her studio practice. As a Northwest artist, Corrine’s paintings have been exhibited regionally and as far away as Miami and New York.
Her work has been included in several North Light books and local publications. In the past 10 years Corrine has been awarded five residencies and traveled to several major cities in the US to participate in intensive workshops with acrylic paint systems.
I intend to “Explore Mono-type, Drawing and Painting techniques on paper and wood panel. Utilizing the space, time and the press to:
- Work with Acrylic Paints, investigating Non Toxic and environmental methods of Printmaking.
- Monotype investigations using the Gelli plate.
- Altering the Monoprint with mix media applications.
- Explore puddle painting on wood panel
The Salem Art Association’s Community Arts Education program hosts an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program in the Annex. This program aims to serve artists by providing a flexible space for artistic development and experimentation.
AIR studio space is located in the Annex at the Bush Barn Art Center. Completely renovated in 2016, the studio is geared primarily toward printmaking but can accommodate artists working in a variety of media. Separated from the studio by two, large sliding doors (which can be left open to encourage public interaction while working), is a large gallery which is made available for the AIR to display their process and/or finished work, or host workshops, lectures, etc.
