Hannah Sepúlveda –Davis earned her BFA in Drawing from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2014. She is the recipient of several awards including the John Jackson Memorial ’77 Scholarship, the Jennie Jones Scholarship, and the Ralph. W. Woehrman ’66 Scholarship in Drawing. The artist currently lives and works outside of Dallas, Texas.
Nick Collier received his BFA from George Mason University, Virginia, in 2012 and his MFA Florida State University in 2016. Collier works as an interdisciplinary artist, employing photography, social practice, and sculpture to explore the intersection of ideas revolving around place, history, and contemporary culture. His work has been shown in galleries in Washington D.C., Virginia, and Florida. He currently resides in Tallahassee Florida where he works as an arts facilitator at The Plant and serves as the President of the board for 621 Gallery.
While in residency at Elsewhere Nick plans on making a body of photography work that investigates the things that embody the town of Paonia as well as the surrounding areas. He is interested in what defines the idea of place and the lure of the local (to borrow from Lucy Lippard). This is a loose framework and one that he plans on keeping flexible and able to change organically throughout his time at Elsewhere. Photographic work will be primarily conducted using a home built Afghan Box Camera (pictured below), an object that he sees as a treasure chest of memory.
RY King is a writer, translator, photographer and scholar living in Durham, North Carolina. During her time at Elsewhere, she hopes to wrap up a project she’s been working on for the past two years—an experimental prose-poetic narrative that traces notions of home, place, and mobility through a series of rhizomatic investigations into the histories of the house sparrow (Passer domesticus), the oyster, the mobile home and Brutalist architecture. The project, like much of her work, makes extensive use of archival resources. As such, she has spent countless hours deep in the archives of libraries and research institutions in Philadelphia, New York, and New Haven, CT. Her residency at Elsewhere will provide much-needed fresh air and a quiet, restful space to think and write.
