School 33 Art Center's 2019 Studio Resident Biennial
School 33 Art Center’s bi-annual exhibition highlights the art of artist-in-residence Mary Baum, Lynn Cazabon, Cheeny Celebrado-Royer, Rachel Guardiola, Taha Heydari, Luke Ikard, Tiffany Jones, Lauren R. Lyde, Sylvie Van Helden and Stephanie Williams. Since 1979, the Studio Artist Program has provided exceptional workspace to more than 150 artists working diverse areas of contemporary visual art.

In 2008, School 33 established the Studio Mentor Program, which facilitates in-studio critiques and professional development for resident artists. Prominent practicing artists and arts professionals from the Mid-Atlantic region provide support and constructive feedback, helping artists to fulfill their creative goals. Every two years, a chosen mentor also serves as curator for the “Studio Resident Biennial.”

The 2019 curator and mentor George Ciscle has mounted groundbreaking exhibitions, created community arts programs, and taught courses in fine arts and humanities for close to 50 years. He was the founder and director of The Contemporary, and from 1997 to 2017 served as curator-in-residence at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). There, Ciscle founded and directed the Exhibition Development Seminar, Curatorial Studies Concentration, and MFA in Curatorial Practice.
