Artists Image Resources (AIR) is an artist run, non-profit print and imaging organization established in 1996 to serve as a laboratory for artists, educators and the community. AIR’s mission is to integrate the creation of fine art prints with educational programs that explore the role of the artist in contemporary culture. AIR’s primary activities are to initiate and facilitate projects with professional artists and to create active laboratory environments where artists, students and the public interact. AIR’s fundamental interest is in how print and imaging processes are being used in broader contemporary art making practice and how these practices impact and reflect culture.
I'm excited about the possibilities of this residency and even more I'm hoping through this fundraiser we can support another artist as well from the city of Pittsburgh and have their residency experience paid for so the artist can focus on making incredible work. The available works were made specifically for Pittsburgh (exhibition "For the Culture") and this fundraiser and some were works that I was holding on to for circumstances like this to support institutions that were dynamic but lacked funding. You also can just make a donation for this residency as well! Please don't hesitate to contact us via email with any questions or inquiries about the work.
