The visiting artist residency brought me back to the core of making prints and helped me make a transition between my past life in California and the new challenges and opportunities in my new place. This was realized through the extraordinary support of artists and staff at the Open Studio and it came to full fruition in my new series of lithographic prints. I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity. – Endi Poskovic, Visiting Artist 2009
