EVENT DATE Jul 10, 2016


My name is Aaron Deshields and I'm an emerging artist, sculptor, and blacksmith currently based in Boone,NC. I have just finished my undergraduate degree and am in the process of getting myself established as an artist independent of the university setting. I have been given an amazing opportunity to be a Resident Artist at Fortress Studios in Detroit, MI. This residency will provide me with the facilities and means to work intensively for several months in my field. However, there is a fee for the residency, and I'm trying to offsett the cost of attending. My work is rooted in industrial and traditional craft processes that emphasize the handmade characteristics of the objects I create. A major goal of my residency is to also provide educational opportunities for those in the community to learn from these processes. I want to share what I do with other people, and show others how empowering making things by hand can be. My website is Thank you for all the support!
