About the Workspace Program Established in 1990, the Workspace Program offers three annual residencies to New York State emerging artists to create new work in handmade paper. The program seeks to encourage emerging artists to explore the creative possibilities of handmade paper, develop this art form, and promote the Workspace artists through exhibitions of their work produced at Dieu Donné, as well as through print and digital format.
Dieu Donné is proud to announce Peter Simensky, Allyson Strafella, and Vargas-Suarez Universal as the Workspace Program emerging artists for 2007-08.
