Dominic Chambers is a prolific young artist living and working in Milwaukee, WI. Born and raised in St. Louis, Chambers is a recent graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, the Yale/Norfolk summer program, and a recipient of the School of the Visual Arts' New York Studio Residency.
Working with multiple drawing and painting media, Dom's work moves with vibrant colors, sharply incised shapes, and rich surfaces. Pulling from his experiences as an avid reader in a difficult environment, his work creates a pictorial environment for black men that embraces imagination and accepts vulnerability as a part of manhood.
Shalini Patel describes Boston-based multimedia artist Maria Molteni's work as being "made possible through simultaneous devotions: from beekeeping to the Shakers, basketball to punk she cultivates her own complex approach to research and practice through an intuitive sense of spatial and psychic purpose."
Her ongoing body of work, L'Oeuf et l'ceil (The Egg and the Eye) uses the material and visual language of tennis to explore perception, perversion, boundaries, and surveillance.

A bonus of the Residential's first artists in residence program, we can enjoy a pop-up presentation of Who Eats at Taco Bell? as Gaelyn and Gustavo demonstrate taco making and we all (yes, YOU) get together to enjoy one another.
Who Eats at Taco Bell? is a platform for thinking about how the interlocking dynamics of immigration and racial justice in U.S.-American history continue to resonate with personal and political notions of movement, belonging, and identity. From May 14 to July 16, 2016, Tug Collective will embark on an expedition over the National Historic Lewis and Clark Trail, making various stops at community venues. All the while, the collective will make tacos with people, prompt dialogue, and invite various forms of engagement around the question: What's it going to take for us to truly live interculturally?
The Residential is very proud to present new works on paper by Kathranne Knight for our inaugural exhibit. These delicate graphite drawings, innocent of erasure, push the limits of form as concept. Their apparent simplicity gives way to their bewitching, studied creation, and their fresh spontaneity is revealed to arise out of patient skill. Careful looking and reflection are richly rewarded in this objects. Please come experience them with us.
