Residency Art Show In-Person
Meet the artists, learn more about the Library's residency programs and see the works created during our inaugural Maker and Teen Artist in Residence programs.
Megan Raab Greenholt is the Library’s inaugural Maker-in-Resident. During her residency, Megan engaged visitors in hands-on learning about natural dyes, embroidery, textile collages and the history and current practice of indigo dying techniques, focusing on the contributions of enslaved peoples in indigo production from South Carolina plantations during the Colonial Era to the modern day reclamation of the practice by African American artist. The final large textile work created from pieces made by participants in residency workshops entitled FREEDOM will be unveiled at the show.
Alayna Rodner just completed her residency with the Library as our first Teen Artist in Residence. During her residency, Alayna led a teen figure drawing workshop and worked on pieces for her portfolio as she prepares for her Senior year of high school and the art school application process. Alayna typically works in oil and watercolor paints, and charcoal and her work can be seen out in the community at Ludwig’s Corner Hardware Store in Chester Springs.
Both the Teen Artist in Residence and the Maker-in-Residence programs are made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Chester County Library and District Center.
