We've already covered artist Colombe Marcasiano's residence at Lynden here, here and here, and now we wanted to share with you pictures of the temporary installations she's left behind now that her residency is over.

You can, of course, see these works in person at the garden!

Yesterday, to mark the end of her month-long residency at Lynden, Paris-based artist Colombe Marcasiano gave an artist talk about her work at the garden. Throughout her time here, Colombe temporarily installed and then deinstalled multiple works. For her talk she put up three pieces including the birdhouses pictured below.

Colombe Marcasiano, Lynden's first long term artist-in-residence is currently in the middle of her month-long stay at Lynden, and we wanted to post a preview of the work she's been doing. Right now, Marcasiano seems to be having a conversation with the garden; she's making pieces, siting them on the grounds and then bringing them back inside. To discover the final result of this conversation, join us on October 28th for the unveiling of her outdoor installation.

Mark Escribano, a 2003 Nohl fellow, has a great Q&A with Art City's Mary Louise Schumacher over on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel site. The conversation touches on Escribano's move from Milwaukee to Los Angeles, his recent work on several "orphaned" art films he began while living in Milwaukee, and more. Read the interview here.

Nicholas Lampert, one of the Established artists awarded a 2011 Nohl Fellowship, collaborated with Dan S. Wang for a print in Zone of Contention: The U.S./Mexico Border at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. The exhibition was curated by Xandra Eden, one of the jurors who selected the 2011 Nohl Fellows, and who became accquainted with Lampert's work during that process.
