The Galveston Artist Residency (GAR) welcomes its three new resident artists for its 2019-2020 cycle tonight, Friday, September 27th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Anne Buckwalter, Elizabeth Cooper, and Elizabeth Glaessner, the artists whose arrival we announced over the summer, will be giving short artists talks, beginning at 7:30, with refreshments to follow.

Elizabeth Cooper is an abstract-gestural-pop painter whose recent exhibitions include the Every Woman Biennial in New York City, Highlight Chelsea at Hollis Taggart Gallery in New York City, and the Düsseldorf Art Fair.
Elizabeth Glaessner is an artist working in silk painting, drawings, paintings, and solar prints. Her recent exhibitions include Mother Tongue at P.P.O.W. Gallery in New York City, Object and Influence at Hygienic Gallery in New London, Connecticut, and Water|Bodies at the Southampton Arts Center in Southampton, New York.
