Mark had to complete a lengthy application and submit images of his work in order to be selected for the exclusive residency. That’s when the process became a truly community-wide event; Mark launched a campaign early in 2014 to help fund the trip. 28 individuals and one local business contributed to become Sponsors for Mark’s trip, including pre-purchasing paintings. All of the paintings from the residency, as well as some smaller watercolor sketches completed while in England will be displayed and available for sale at the CFA Gallery.
