Sarita Westrup – “The Tension of Connection”
NBO 2023 Conference Instructor Sarita Westrup was recently featured in an interview with Glasstire, Texas Visual Art. In 2022, Arts Fort Worth announced its new Emerging Artist Residency Program. The program provides one artist with a non-residential studio space at the arts center for 12 months, a monthly stipend for materials, and arranged studio visits with established local artists and arts professionals. The program culminates in a solo exhibition. NBO member and North Texas-based artist Sarita Westrup was selected as the inaugural participant in the program. The work she created during the residency is now on view in her solo exhibition, The Tension of Connection.
