FEATURING THE WORK OF DANIELLE DIMSTON
On February 1, the Work Center welcomes New York-based artist Danielle Dimston as the first recipient of the inaugural Stephen Pace Residency. With the support of the Stephen and Palmina Pace Foundation, this new month-long residency aims to fill the gap that exists in support for mid-career painters, offering four weeks of time and a studio space while also providing mentorship to the Work Center’s 10 Visual Fellows, now mid-way in their 7-month Fellowship. The residency honors mid-20th century painter Stephen Pace, who during a long and productive career made important contributions to the tradition of Abstract Expressionism before returning in later years to more figural subjects. An important influence was Hans Hofmann, with whom Pace worked in the 1950s, spending substantial periods of time in Provincetown.
Danielle Dimston has received grants and awards from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Peter S. Reed Foundation, Artist Space, and Smack Mellon, and has participated in artist residencies at Yaddo, Millay Colony for the Arts, Virginia Center for Creative Arts, and Mino Art Paper Village in Japan. After studying drawing and painting at The New York Studio School, Dimston earned an MFA from Boston University. She has taught as a visiting professor at University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Danielle Dimston has shown widely in the US and abroad. Her work is in many private collections and The Cleveland Museum of Art, which purchased a suite of prints that had been produced with C.R. Ettinger Editions in Philadelphia.
