Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
The residency offers an unrestricted grant of $2,500, as well as focused studio time, one-on-one critiques with members of Baxter St’s Art Advisory Board, and family accommodations in New York’s Catskill Mountains.
“The Baxter St Family Residency is intended to drive home the notion that motherhood and artistic practice do not have to be mutually exclusive,” said Baxter St President Michi Jigarjian.
“We’ve admired Nona’s work for years, and are excited for STONELEAF to provide her and her family with a nourishing time to rest and create,” said Helen Toomer, co-founder of STONELEAF RETREAT. “We’re honored to be collaborating with Baxter St to increase the support of artists with children, which feels especially urgent now, during such a difficult time.”
Faustine is a native New Yorker and award-winning photographer. Her practice explores the intersection of identity and history, reconstructing the narrative of race, memory, and time. She draws inspiration from stereotypes, folklore, anthropology, and other forms of art, including architecture and sculpture. "As a single mother dedicated to both my family and my practice as a photographer and visual artist, it is a great pleasure to be recognized and supported by STONELEAF and Baxter St through this residency," said Faustine.
