RECEPTION October 25, 5-9PM INSIGHT Art Talk November 4 | 7 pm bitforms Gallery Director, Steve Sacks
The words and ideas generated by the great American Poet and former East Lawrence resident Langston Hughes provided the inspiration for this project. Like Hughes, Stephen Johnson looks for visual rhythms in search of the ideas and associations they may elicit. 9th Street Rhythms is a celebration of East Ninth Street and its adjoining streets and alleyways.
Founded in 2001, bitforms gallery represents established, mid-career, and emerging artists critically engaged with new technologies. Spanning the rich history of media art through its current developments, the gallery’s program offers an incisive perspective on the fields of digital, internet, time-based, and new media art forms. This exhibition is a showcase of bitforms artists.

The Lawrence Arts Center and the East Lawrence Neighborhood Association came together in 2018 to create a plan to complete the community-based public art grant awarded by ArtPlace. Since then, there have been three community input sessions to gather information about what the neighborhood values and needs are for the project. Using the input from these meetings, local and regional artists created proposals and submitted them for consideration to participate in the project. We had a total of 57 proposals submitted and 15 of them have been chosen by jurors to create community-based public art around the East Lawrence neighborhood. The artists will be working to complete their projects within the next year and they will be finished by June of 2020. Check in at the website to stay updated on the projects and to see how you can get involved!

Welcome 2019-20 Artists in Residence
The Lawrence Arts Center is thrilled to welcome our Ceramics and Printmaking Artists in Residence for 2019-2020. Our residents spend their year working in our studios, teaching, doing community outreach and developing a new body of work. They infuse our studios with a wealth of experience, enthusiasm, and skills, bring new ideas, and offer fresh perspectives to our community in Lawrence. Following an internationally competitive process with countless highly qualified applicants, we are delighted to announce that we have selected Ashlyn Pope as our ceramicist and Dayon Royster as our printmaker.
Ashlyn Pope | Ceramics Artist in Residence 2019-2020
Ashlyn Pope is an African American sculptor of Gullah descent. She holds a BFA in Ceramics and Printmaking from Kennesaw State University. She recently graduated with her MFA in Ceramics from Pennsylvania State University. Ashlyn is inspired to serve in her community as a champion for diversity. She does so by serving on the board for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts as a Student Director at Large. Ashlyn mainly works with ceramics and textiles to create work rooted in personal experiences as a survivor of abuse living in a female Black body. The American system is one of constriction, for her body and for those who look like her. Ashlyn’s work is born of that nature. Through her eyes, spaces are both restricting and binding, yet they also contain hope, strength, and power. Ashlyn uses her work to address how bound or boundless we are.
| Printmaking Artist in Residence 2019-2020
Dayon Royster is an artist hailing from Richmond, VA. He received his BFA in Printmaking from East Carolina University and an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Iowa. While at ECU, he embarked on his first foray into printmaking with no idea of the path down which it would send him. Printmaking continues to captivate him because of the creative problem solving that is involved with the process; he returns day after day to try his hand at pulling a successful print. Dayon’s current work conjures universal themes of accessibility, curiosity, empowerment, self-doubt, identity, suppression, symbolism, and the “other.” Our Artist in Residence program is generously supported by everyone who raises the paddle at our Annual Art Auction to support our Visiting Artist & Resident Fund.
