Grant Recipient

Geoffrey Bowton

Windgate-Lamar Fellowship

2019

Statement: My path to becoming an artist began while embedded inside a combat zone. After deploying to the Middle East for the Army, and subsequently returning to non-military life, I discovered the potential of art to both reconcile and share my experience. My work confronts military service and re-entry into civilian life. Fellowship Plans: I will be participating in a glass residency in Bozeman,Montana, and a business workshop in Santa Fe,New Mexico. I believe that engaging with unknown techniques and materials, and learning from artists with varied practices, is critical to promote evolution in my work. These workshops, as well as visits to veteran related museums and sites, will inform new work.
