Connor Rice ’14 and Nancy Julia Hicks ’18 have been selected as 2018–2019 Jerome Emerging Printmakers.

Rice plans to use the residency to improve upon his large format print work and broaden his practice through the introduction of new techniques and experimentation with materials. He’s excited by the possibility to connect with other artists and the opportunity for creative growth.

Hicks's print, performance, and installation work will examine the detrimental effect institutional structures have on marginalized bodies. Through abstracting and skewing architectural floor plans, duplicating architectural structures in soft sculpture, and performance her work will envision architectural spaces designed specifically for marginalized bodies.

Through the Jerome Foundation, Highpoint has served more than forty emerging printmakers. The residency will end with a culminating exhibition in May.
