Vita Paper Arts Residency

Gregory Vita (1990-2017) was a dedicated, perseverant, talented papermaker, paper marbler, bookmaker, and printmaker. At Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, he wore many hats: resident artist, teacher, skateboarder, and friend you could run your wildest art ideas by. Due to the generosity of Greg’s family and friends, PAAC is proud to offer a new artist residency opportunity in his honor.
Residency dates: May 15-August 17, 2024.

Selected artists will receive:
-A three-month residency in PAAC’s paper studio

-Two papermaking workshops (from our summer workshop line-up)
-Three (4-hour) lessons in other studios with PAAC’s artistic associates
