In celebration of the work and legacy of beloved artist Jen Cole, Kala’s community of artists have come together to create a one-month, annual Artist-in-Residence (AIR) award in Jen’s name. This opportunity is for a local printmaker to come to Kala for a one-month artist residency at Kala and includes a small stipend for supplies. This award is meant to support an artist who is at a pivotal point in their practice, needs support financially or in other ways, and for whom this opportunity will be transformative creatively. Make your donation today to honor Jen and carry on her spirit of creativity and community. You can make a one-time donation or a recurring annual donation by checking the recurring donations box via paypal. Please note this is for the Jen Cole AIR award. Thank you!
