Welcome Patti Fields & Ray Juaire as this year’s AIR artists.

Patti & Ray will be working in Zygote’s studio this summer. Stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile save the date for their closing reception and artist talk.

Closing Reception September 26th 2-4pm   ** Artist talk 3pm **

The full run of the exhibition is September 4th through October 3rd, 2015.

Patti Fields and Ray Juaire work and live in the Cleveland area. They both attended The Cleveland Institute of Art where they met and began their collaboration over 20 years ago. Fields, a trained Metalsmith, often focuses on the smallest of details within her jewelry and sculptural work, while Juaire comes from a background in Painting, Sculpture, and Photography. Together, they create objects that utilize both their vision, interests, and skills.

They often transform a variety of media to create artwork that, at times, symbolizes their professional and personal relationship and explores issues of place and memory. Their work can be singular or done in small series that play with balance, utilizing dynamic forms, conceptual narratives, and a re-imagined history of the objects they incorporate in each of their pieces. They create new histories in the combinations of fabricated and found objects and work to create metaphors for the nucleus of human, scientific, and metaphysical relationships.

Residency

Zygote Press hosts artists from around the globe through collaborations with national and international partners. We work closely with these partners and artists in an effort to foster a robust and diverse network of opportunities for both artists and curators to exchange knowledge and experiences in the Cleveland community and beyond. Our international residencies are selected through an internal process. Therefore Zygote Press does not accept applications or nominations. 

For other open residency opportunities at Zygote, please consider applying for an open-call or self-styled residency.

Open Call Winter/summer residencies

Zygote accepts applications for two 14-day residencies per year, one in summer and one in winter. Qualified artist residents should be established printmakers in the U.S. or abroad with the aim to work on a special project in Zygote’s Northeast Ohio facilities. The next deadline for Zygote’s winter/summer residency (for residencies in 2019) is June 15, 2018.

Stay at ZPASS for an independent residency

There are also opportunities to stay at our ZPASS apartment for a self-styled residency. Depending on availability, the ZPASS apartments are occasionally available for individuals to rent. Visit our self-styled residency page for information on how to apply.
