Navasota Artists In Residence
The Arts Council has partnered with the City of Navasota for an Artist in Residence program in the wonderful community just 25 minutes south of College Station on Highway 6. The Navasota Artists in Residence program gives two to three artists the opportunity to live and create art at the Horlock Art Gallery & History Museum. Provided by the City of Navasota, the house features living, studio, and gallery space, to create a unique experience and atmosphere for the artists.Apply For Residence
My work centers around the protection and safety of the LGBT+ community in their own homes. As a lesbian couple who recently graduated from university, my partner and I found ourselves in a brand new city without any connections to other lesbians or knowledge of the local culture. We were afraid and vulnerable, unsure of how to build the kind of community we had before. The internet became our lifeline, allowing us to connect with others like us through Twitter, Discord servers, Tik Tok and subreddits. Online spaces are curated by the users, yet the algorithms continuously remind us that we are not welcome.
