Residency 2002 – Merilyn Fairskye

Merilyn Fairskye, winner of the 31st Alice Prize, took up residency in July 2002. In between “going everywhere and seeing everything”. Merilyn met many local artists and gave a stimulating talk.

“I would like to express my deepest thanks to the Alice Springs Art Foundation for giving me the opportunity to spend a month in Alice Springs in July. The residency was a fantastic opportunity for me, and exceeded all my expectations about the experience of being in Alice Springs, as well as my projections as to what might come from it in terms of my work”.

“The residency in Alice Springs in its own way is as interesting, and as rewarding, as any of the overseas studios I have had in the past.”
