As a visual artist and a tenure track faculty member here at Bridgewater State College it is important for me personally and professionally to produce new work and to actively pursue locations to exhibit my work. It is equally important for me to continually send out professional photographic material to be published or considered for exhibition space. With this comes an exuberant cost of having to buy ceramic supplies, hire a professional photographer to photograph recent work, construct appropriate crates to ship work in, hire a shipping company to deliver the work and travel to attend openings and lecture. Recently I have produced photographed, copied slides and purchased material to ship work out for over 30 pieces. I am applying for this grant to help alleviate the cost of some of the recent and upcoming shows and events in which I have been involved with.
