Historic New England and the New England Sculptors Association (NESA) are pleased to announce that sculptor Amanda Sisk is the first artist-in-residence at Governor John Langdon House in Portsmouth. The residency begins on August 1 and the artist’s studio is open to the public Fridays through Sundays, August 5 through August 28, during regular museum hours. Sisk will delve into the history of Langdon House and invite the public to view the evolving artwork inspired by that research. Visitors may also participate in workshops she has developed for people of all skill levels or engage with her during Art ’Round Town on August 5 and September 2 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. In September Sisk’s work will be auctioned to help raise awareness and funds to support the artist-in-residence program. Sisk is an award-winning sculptor with extensive figurative-sculpting experience. In the United States and in Italy, she learned to sculpt as artists did in the 1800s. She has exhibited widely, and her work can be found in private collections, museums, and public venues. She was also artist-in-residence for two seasons at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire.
