In the art world, scoring a residency is a big deal. The Carbondale Clay Center accepts four artists every year to come work at their studios in Carbondale. Alex Knipe was a resident in 2006, and after taking some time to earn her MFA and study in Turkey on a Fulbright research grant, she finds herself back in Carbondale. Knipe discusses how the center's residency changed her life, professionally and creatively, and Executive Director, Jill Oberman, shares the importance of residencies for emerging artists.
