We’re thrilled to welcome Thalassa Raasch as our videographer in residence. We’re expertimenting with new formats for residencies and when Thalassa came to us with her video expertise, we realized a residency would be an exciting platform for collaboration. In the next few months she’ll be following around our visiting artists with her camera and making short video pieces about our exhibitions. We love the video she made about Natalie Lanese’s Popscapes, and we can’t wait to see what else she’ll come up with.
Thank you Thalassa!

Her personal work has been featured on DownEast.com and Freerange Nonfiction, and exhibited at United Photo Industries, Engine, and Frontier Gallery among others.
