Exhibition and Studio Work Plan

Kari Friestad (Visual Art & Design)

Exhibition and Studio Work Plan (2015-2016)

My exhibition plan is to submit my current studio work for regional and national juried exhibitions. Shows which I will be submitting my work for include: the National Wet Paint MFA Biennial; New American Paintings juried exhibition-in-print; the Michigan Emerging Graduate Artist Juried Exhibition; The West Michigan Area Show juried exhibition; ArtPrize 2015; and the Northern National Art Competition, as well as others. For my studio work I plan to continue the current body of work to create 6-8 new paintings this summer (dependent on complexity and size). I also plan to work with a web designer and photographer on a new website and photographs of new work. My research grant would fund the costs for application fees, paying for transportation costs to and from the shows, my website and documentation of my work, and supplies.
