Sierra Nevada College (SNC)'s low residency MFA-IA Program is pleased to highlight one of the newest members of our Visiting Faculty, Ashley Stull Meyers.

Ashley is a writer, editor, and curator. She has curated exhibitions and public programming for a diverse set of arts institutions along the west coast, including those in San Francisco, CA, Oakland, CA, Seattle, WA, and Portland, OR. She has been in academic residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art (Omaha, NE) and the Banff Centre (Banff, Alberta). She is currently Northwest Editor for Art Practical and is co-curator of the 2019 Portland Biennial. This past summer, Ashley led the 2018 MFA-IA graduates through the conception and installation of their Thesis Exhibition and helped them realize how to better understand and articulate the importance of both individual and group artistic gestures.

We are happy to announce that Ashley will be back as a Visiting Faculty member for the upcoming winter residency, January 3–12, 2019. There are a few spots still open to begin the MFA-IA program this winter—please see our website for application instructions here.

The MFA-Interdisciplinary Arts Program is low-residency, and consists of two intensive ten-day, on-campus residencies during summer and winter sessions over the course of two and a half years. During the fall and spring semesters, students work in their home studios and continue relationships with faculty mentors and fellow colleagues remotely through online seminars and other points of contact.

Sierra Nevada College is a small, liberal arts college, located three blocks from Lake Tahoe, within a national forest, on an easily accessible campus in Incline Village, NV. The low-residency MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts is a locus for creative problem solving, fostered by creative thinking with an emphasis on community. The experience and exploration of embodied place is a central element of this distinctive program, encouraging students' multi-dimensional relationship with their environment both in the Tahoe Basin and within their own communities.
