Introduction to the 2016 Windgate ITE International Residency: Seven at the Center

Hello from Indianapolis where I am practicing my new social-media skills in preparation for documenting the activities of the 2016 Windgate ITE International Residency, sponsored by The Center for Art in Wood, Philadelphia. Five resident artists, a historian, and a journalist will work together for 10 weeks of creativity and community; fun and laughter; and getting-down-and-dirty, intense work! Our base of action will be the wood studio at the University of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. In addition, we will participate in Echo Lake Collaborative, present a session at the Furniture Society Conference, and travel to Washington, D.C., to visit museums and private collections. Follow our journey, and post your comments and questions! — Betty J. Scarpino, Photojournalist
