The New York-based painter Charline von Heyl, who shows with Friedrich Petzel in this city, has been named a recipient of the Wex Artist Residency, in association with the Wexner Center of Columbus, Ohio, Broadwayworld.com reports.

More from that story:

Celebrating more than 20 years of vital collaboration and direct support to artists, the center’s Artist Residency Award program offers significant resources for innovators across all creative disciplines, selected each year by the center’s curators and director. These unique residencies include considerable financial resources, along with the technical, intellectual, and staff support, along with (mental and physical) space in which to develop new work and engage with Ohio State classes and the Columbus community. A total of $200,000 annually is earmarked for distribution among the Artist Residency Awards.

Notes Wexner Center Director Sherri Geldin, “These highly “artist-centric” residencies underscore the center’s core commitment to fuel the creative expression of our time, while complementing Ohio State’s mission as a leading research institution. Indeed, we believe the Wex Artist Residency Award program is distinctive for its multidisciplinary nature and flexible design, as well as for the breadth and magnitude of resources that are regularly brought to bear. Residency artists at various stages of their careers are allowed the freedom to experiment and sometimes explore entirely new directions in their work. At the same time, their presence on campus and in the community provide for many points of meaningful interaction among the artists, university students and faculty, and the public at large.”
