"I am humbled and honored to be Plough Gallery's first Artist in Residence. For the past year and a half, I have worked with artists to tell their stories and share their experience as an artist in a rural community. These are people I admire and respect for honing their craft and sharing it. Now, I will be one of them. As a resident at Plough Gallery, I have been given the time, space, and encouragement to create. And that's exactly what I will do. I can't wait to share with the community my passion for self-expression, critical examination, and arts accessibility." -- Shelby Nicole Evans
