Brightheart Fellowship: Greece Residency

In the summer of 2019, Maud Taber-Thomas was awarded the Brightheart Fellowship, an artist residency taking place alongside the Paideia Institute’s Living Greek in Greece program in Selianitika, Greece. During her sojourn there, she collaborated with the students of the program, who were studying spoken ancient Greek, creating portraits of them as characters from Greek mythology and literature. It was a wonderful experience of interdisciplinary cross-pollination, as her sitters lent their expertise and insight into the psychology of the characters. Most of the portraits are done in charcoal. Maud also created two large oil portraits, as well several painted studies of the local scenery.
