In The Studio

Lizzy Martinez

New Artist Residency
Good News Everyone! I've been awarded a prestigious live/work residency for 2018 at Crosstown Arts in Memphis. I'm very excited to bring my Sister Saints project into being during my time in residency. This project involves elaborate figure drawing/painting, feminist history, and working with the hispanic population and survivors of domestic violence in Memphis. While this is a relatively new arts facility it is one of the largest in the midwest; in addition to 16 artist studios with specialized equipment there is a theatre space, café, bar, community clinic, charitable bakery, gallery, and event space. Definitely pass the word along... Thank you Crosstown Arts for your wonderful support of my practice! (image credit to Crosstown Arts' previous resident Ben Butler)
