One studio at Inscape is not rented as a normal studio space; instead it is used both as a gallery space for projects curated by Inscape artists and as a space awarded to an artist-in-residence for a period ranging from 1 – 4 months. A small group of Inscape artists select the artist-in-residence.

Natasha Marin, our current artist-in-residence, will be wrapping up her time at Inscape with a solo exhibition during the Open Studios on Saturday June 9 from 11am – 5pm.

Marin’s current project, Black Imagination, has been the focus of her time at Inscape and will also be the subject of an exhibition this spring in Tacoma (FEAST Arts Center) and another this summer in Seattle (Virago Gallery). On his experience of the project, Charles Mudede wrote, “The US is visually white but sonically black. We have for the eyes, the face of Marilyn Monroe, but for the ears, the voice of Billie Holiday. And so it is in sound that American blackness has its greatest and most immediate power. Black Imagination exploits this power effectively.”
