CEPA Gallery 2014 regional artist in residence Michael Brown

Michael Brown

Featured Regional Artist in Residence

Michael Brown was CEPA’s 2014 Cultural Exchange Artist in Residence. Michael Brown was photographer, and arts image consultant to the Arts Council of Ireland from 2001-2011. During his tenure, he toured Ireland annually collecting unique, candid images of arts events for the council’s image bank. Michael’s charge was to feature performances that displayed the most artistic integrity, and the Arts Council gave him free reign to choose which performances to cover, due to his knowledge of the arts in Ireland — a precedent to that point.
