MSU art students accept year-long residency at Cub Creek Foundation

Morehead State University is home to one of the most comprehensive schools of art, design and education in the state of Kentucky. This year, two students from the Department of Art and Design will go on to continue their education and hone their craft through a unique opportunity. 

Garrett Baldridge, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art student from Elliottville, and Dallas Banks, a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art student from Pewee Valley, have both received and accepted offers to take part in a year-long residency focusing on clay at the Cub Creek Foundation in Appomattox, Virginia.  

The primary focus of the Cub Creek residency is to assist emerging clay artists with the development and advancement of their careers. While attending the residency, artists learn information regarding materials, the firing process, glaze and slip formulas along with issues of historical and technical importance. 

“This is a great accomplishment for both Dallas and Garrett. Being awarded these residency positions will go a long way in helping to establish and define what their lives and careers will be as artists,” said Adam Yungbluth, visiting assistant professor of art and design at MSU. “Their shared time at MSU spoke volumes to their passion for ceramics and dedication to their practice. Their presence in the ceramics studio will be missed, but this opportunity will be well worth it.”
