The Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program has been going strong since 1991. Each year 16 artists (ranging from emerging to more established) are selected for one year of free studio space in Dumbo, Brooklyn. 2013 marks the 5th anniversary of the Space Program’s relocation across the river to Brooklyn – for 17 years the studios were housed in Tribeca. This year is no exception to the eclectic mix of painters, sculptors, video, and performance artists. The artists participating in the 2012-13 Space Program are: Lisa Beck, Pam Butler, Kris Chatterson, N. Dash, Amy Feldman, Robert Green, Vit Horejs, Gilbert Hsiao, Liz Magic Laser, Beverly McIver, Sam Messer, Douglas Melini, Jennifer Nuss, Erika Ranee, Hadieh Shafie, David Simons, Didier William, and Randy Wray.
