The Artist-Invite-Artists Residency provides artists with the opportunity to have a small focused amount of time for their studio practice that may or may not be possible during their normal, daily routines. The Red Lodge Clay Center keeps the months of June, July, and August open and available to the AIA Residency Program. The artists who are selected for the residency might have day jobs that range from academia to administration to full-time studio artist. We provide them with the time and space needed to work in a creative environment with their peers and colleagues in the field of ceramics. Dialogue, collaboration, and influences can and will happen during their time spent together in the studio. The Red Lodge Clay Center is pleased and excited to host an exhibition that showcases the artwork of the summer AIA groups into one exhibition to start the summer season in the Loft Gallery.

Lorna Meaden is a full-time studio artist living and working in Durango, Colorado and also one of our represented artists. She has invited Jennifer Holt, Todd Hayes, Carla Potter, Mat Rude, Aubrey Rude, and Ryan McKerley.

Elaine Henry is a full-time studio artist and she is also the Editor/Publisher for Ceramics: Art and Perception. Elaine has invited four international artists to participate in her group: Tina Byrne, John Parker, Elaine Riordan, and Chris Weaver.

Paul Northway is our last AIA group for the summer. Paul is an Assistant Professor at Northwest Vista College in San Antonio, Texas. For his group, he has invited Karl McDade, Kelly Connole, Megan Bogonovich, Alex Kraft, Joe Batt, and Max Stolkin.
