Alumni Highlight / Liza Dorsey + Leslie Barlow’s Soap Factory Residency
This month, MFA alumni painters Liza Dorsey ’16 and Leslie Barlow ’16 held artist residencies at the Soap Factory, as part of the exciting new “3×5” project. The project hosts one or more emerging artists to create work in three unique gallery spaces within the iconic Minneapolis Soap Factory building, and holds an open house group exhibition of their work at the end of each residency month.
From the Soap Factory: “Our goal is to give artists-in-residence support in the areas they need most support in; space to create, freedom to experiment, networking opportunities, exposure for and critical reviews of their work.”
Liza and Leslie’s work was on display, along with Artist Coordinator and MFA mentor Jehra Patrick as part of the July show on Saturday, July 23rd.
