Exhibition Dates: March 24 – April 28, 2021

The second exhibition from the Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York and the National YoungArts Foundation Residency Program, GALOOT, featuring an experimental short film by Devon Leaver, will open on TBD.

New York, NY – Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York, the non-profit artist-run organization dedicated to supporting lens-based artists is pleased to announce the second year of the residency program in partnership with National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts).

YoungArts | Baxter St Residency Program supports artists working in the mediums of photography, film, and video practices, by providing funding and workspace, culminating in an exhibition. The partnership with YoungArts further expands Baxter St’s efforts of engagement with emerging artists at critical points in their educational and professional careers.

As the second resident in the program, Devon Leaver (2011 YoungArts Winner in Film) will present her experimental short film GALOOT. The film, written and directed by Leaver, follows the journey of the titular character, a creature named Galoot, immersing the viewer in the experience of growing up on the autism spectrum. Leaver, who took inspiration from childhood writings and drawings, worked in partnership with her sister Brenna Leaver – who constructed and performed the character Galoot – to create this touching short film.
