Micah Daw ’18

Greensboro, North Carolina

My time at Open Wabi was wonderful! It provided a much-needed reprieve from my daily routine. It allowed me the time and space to reflect on my practice while investigating new avenues of making. The environment in and around Open Wabi is serene with endless possibility. It was a great joy exchanging ideas with other resident artists and artists there in the surrounding community. Open Wabi is a beautiful place to concentrate on the development of your artwork and engage with other artists.
