The Comma Project, an annual publication of objects and words housed at the FSU Facility for Arts Research is pleased to announce its first artist in residence. Lorrie Fredette, who will be visiting FAR June 8-14, will be working with Comma director and founder, Judy Rushin, on an upcoming release. Fredette’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She has participated in residencies at the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, (Ithaca, NY), the Adolf and Virginia Dehn Visiting Artist Program at Loomis Chaffee, (Windsor, CT), and the Women’s Studio Workshop, (Rosendale, NY).
The Comma Project appeals to the idea that collections of small things create narratives they wouldn’t carry individually, and that intimate encounters with objects can potentially grab our imaginations. Comma collaboratively creates and produces a variety of hand-made and digitally produced, 2- and 3-dimensional works intended to be handled. Each volume will bring together visiting artists to contribute to a limited edition boxed set.
