Meet the future of art

Kachelle Knowles and Giovanna Swaby are this year’s recipients of the Popop Junior Residency Prize, Popopstudios International Center for the Visual Arts announced this week.
“These are two of the youngest and brightest artists in the country,” said John Cox, Popopstudios founder.
Offered in conjunction with the D’ Aguilar Art Foundation, the Popop Junior Residency Prize allows students the opportunity to explore new artistic paths, to learn and experiment while developing their skills.
The students are given a studio to share and are invited to interact with artists who hold studios at Popop.
Gio and Kachelle are excited about the summer ahead.
Additionally, the junior resident artists will be escorted on learning trips. In past years, junior residents traveled to New York to visit galleries and museums. They also gained experience in sustainable art during an eco-art symposium led by Antonius Roberts at Schooner Bay.
This is the fourth year that Popopstudios is offering the program.
