This past week, artists from all over flocked to the area for the seventh Pontiac Artists’ Residency project.
Organizer Valerie Bridgeman said that they varied from about 12 to 20 participants each day, seven of whom were visitors hosted by Art Pontiac members.
“I publicize the Artists’ Residency and we get applications from artists from all over the place,” she said. “At the same time I have Art Pontiac members that are able to host these artists. Once I know how many beds we have, that’s how many applicants I can take.”
