Congratulations to Chelsea Raflo (whose video from her February show at MINT is seen here), one of three young local artists who receive an amazing package of perks, including free studio space at the Goat Farm, a residency at the Hambidge Center in the northern Georgia mountains, and free memberships to WonderRoot, the Atlanta Contemporary Art CenterGeorgia Lawyers for the Arts, and C4 Atlanta, as they begin their yearlong journey as honorees of MINT Gallery’s Leap Year program. (Click here for BURNAWAY’s radio interview with Erica Jameson of MINT.) This is Leap Year’s first round of awards, so its “inaugural class” has both the pleasure and burden of setting the tone for next year’s winners and, hopefully, artists for years to come. Selected by an independent panel of judges, the three winners are John Paul FloydChelsea Raflo, and Jane Garver. Congratulations!
