Lael Marshall: (b. 1968, Seattle Washington) received a BFA from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and an MFA as ‘Meisterschülerin‘ from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Germany.
Marshall’s work is a quiet tribute to the beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives. Patterned clothes, dishtowels, or handkerchiefs are often the materials she works with. The textures, patterns, or transparencies attract her originally, after which she sets forth cutting, sewing, stretching, priming, or painting until something new arrises. Marshall’s work is about that precise moment when a material tips, and demands greater attention; a different and more attuned sort of looking. Marshall’s work straddles the boundary between object and image. She is attentive to the limits of manipulation a material requires until it relinquishes its original identity as a utilitarian object to become something new; when for example, a dishtowel stops being a dishtowel, and suddenly transcends to become a painting.
Recent solo and 2-person shows include Gray Contemporary (Houston, TX), 57W57ARTS (NYC), Dieu Donné (NYC), and mitart gallery, Basel, Switzerland. Group exhibitions include The Riverside Art Museum, (Riverside, CA), Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, BRIC (Brooklyn), The Curator Gallery (NYC), ParisCONCRET (Paris), Sydney Non-Objective (Sydney), Beers Contemporary (London), A/B/Contemporary (Zurich), A3 Gallery (Moscow), Look&Listen (Saint -Chamas, France), Moulins de Villancourt (Pont de Claix, France).
Marshall’s work was included in the publications: ‘100 Painters of Tomorrow,’ Kurt Beers, Thames & Hudson, 2014, and ‘The Outlaw Bible of American Art’, Alan Kaufman, Last Gasp Books, San Francisco, 2016. Marshall was awarded a Dieu Donné.

Monson Arts Residency: Call for Applications
The Maryland Institute College of Art is pleased to open a call for applications for a residency at Monson Arts for one-month. Applicants should choose (3) options for preferred dates from the Monson Arts schedule. The selected artist will be provided with a studio space, housing, and food. The artist will receive a $1,000 stipend. Although the studio space will be basic, there will be access to a wood shop and metal shop.
Monson Arts is a new artists’ residency and arts center in Monson, Maine, located at the edge of Maine’s North Woods- a 3.5 million acres of forest bordering Canada. It is the last town on the Appalachian Trail, before the beginning of the 100-Mile Wilderness that leads to Mount Katahdin. Since it was founded in 1822, the community has had an economy based on natural resources. In the late 19th through the early 20th centuries, slate quarries supported a thriving industry.
The region also has a rich arts tradition— ranging from Henry David Thoreau, who wrote about the area in The Maine Woods to photographer Berenice Abbott who lived in nearby Blanchard, to traditional makers such as the North Woods Canoe Company in Atkinson.
The foundation has purchased and renovated over 20 buildings in the community to be used for residences and studios. Stuart Kestenbaum, former director of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Maine’s poet laureate, is advising the foundation on the development of the programs.
Deadline: November 1, 2018
Eligibility: MICA Graduating MFA, MA, Post-Bacc Students Class of 2019 and alumni of MICA’s graduate programs.
