Artist-in-Residence: Mark Dilks

Mark Dilks, a painter and collage artist from Philadelphia, Pa., recently completed a week-long artist residency at Better Farm.

A graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., Mark has worked for a number of years at numerous Philadelphia-based art institutions; including a stint as arts coordinator at Please Touch Museum, Philadelphia's children's museum. While there, Mark planned, organized, and executed activities for the museum's visitors. He painted all the while, working mostly in oil-on-canvas. Before coming to Better Farm, Mark held several residencies elsewhere, including Vermont Studio Center; and shared a studio with the founders of A United Front, an organization connecting creative communities. Mark will begin coursework at MICA in Baltimore this month. His band Deep Possum plays regularly in the Philadelphia area.
