Past Residents of Long Meadow
Long Meadow's inaugural resident, Jamel Robinson is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist working in the mediums of abstract expressionist painting, sculpture, writing, and performance. His work ponders itself alongside maker and audience while serving as a time-stamp of the experiences shaping his life and creative practice.
Robinson’s works have gained him notoriety at home and abroad, attracting a variety of prominent collectors.
Jamel has most recently been celebrated by the New York Times and CBS News for his “Beauty from Ashes,” solo exhibition and teaching artist residency at the Hudson River Museum in New York. The body of work was curated in response to “African American Art in the 20th Century,” the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s traveling exhibition of select permanent works which opened at the Hudson River Museum at the start of Robinson’s residency in the fall of 2021.
Robinson lives and works in Harlem, New York City where he was born and raised.
Long Meadow was thrilled to have Anna Berghuis as our Spring 2023, and second, artist in residence.
Anna is a New York based visual artist. Her work explores what it means to inhabit a body in an increasingly digital world. Berghuis grew up in Baltimore, MD and received her BA from Princeton University in Art History and Studio Arts.
Her paintings confront the relationship between our digital lives and our physical bodies. The work reckons with authenticity and performance of identity in a time of prolific image making and sharing online. The lines between the real and unreal at times become blurred when the internet plays a role in how we form our opinions of ourselves and of each other.
She has exhibited nationally in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and Boston.
