September 13 – October 6, 2021
September 25 and October 2, 2022- Artist Talks at the Jemez Springs Public Library
Jim Gladstone, a writer living in San Francisco, will shift gears while in residence to focus on his manuscript, titled “The Love Song of Mookie Macaw”. Some of the topics related to his work are: “What are similarities and differences in the relationship between artists and their art and the relationship between parents and their children?, what cartoon characters have had the biggest impact on your life, and what important objects or activities from your life are unfamiliar or strange to people a generation or two younger than you?”.
The community outreach aspect of the residency will be a series of interactive, evening gatherings, during each of which the artist would give a brief presentation of one of the ideas he is exploring in this novel and then facilitate discussion and personal storytelling around the topic with attendees.
