Three Artists To Watch

Caitlin Doyle, Dipti Bramhandkar, Luisa Caldwell.

Guild Hall in East Hampton hosts the final days of its four-week fall Artist-In-Residence program now through Monday, November 25.

The program, titled Guild House, has hosted 25 artists over the four-year period since its inception in 2016. The mission is to foster the artistic spirit of the East End through connecting next-generation artists early in their careers. It spans across creative writing, visual, and performing arts fields, providing each AIR a living space breeding collaboration and ongoing personal development.

This year’s residents are Caitlin Doyle, Luisa Caldwell, and Dipti Bramhandkar.

Doyle received an MFA from Boston University as the George Starbuck Fellow in poetry. She recently received a PhD as an Elliston Fellow in poetry at the University of Cincinnati, where she served as the associate editor of The Cincinnati Review. She is working on completing her debut poetry collection. Her skilled writing has landed her in noted publications such as The Atlantic, The Guardian, and Yale Review, to name a few, in addition to being featured through the PBS News Hour Poetry Series. Other awards and fellowships to her name include from the Jack Kerouac House, the Frost Farm, and the Amy Award. Doyle will give a poetry reading at Canio’s Books in Sag Harbor on Friday, November 22, at 6 PM.

As a multidisciplinary artist, Caldwell’s works range from paper to large-scale installations. At the core of each installation is her use of reclaimed and collected materials. Her permanent commissions include her award-winning 15 mosaic and art glass panels for the MTA Art & Design at the East 180th Street Bronx Zoo subway station. Recent solo exhibitions list “Triple C” at the Long Island University Humanities Gallery in Brooklyn, and “Primavera” at The Bowery Poetry Club in New York. A recent group show took Caldwell all the way to Bologna, Italy, with “Ondate/Waves” at the Officina 15.

Bramhandkar is a New York City playwright who began writing when she moved from Mumbai to upstate New York. She received a BA from Cornell University, where she began to write creatively, and continued on to receive her MA from Cambridge University. In 2014, her writing went from the page to the stage while she attended the Labyrinth Theater Intensive Ensemble retreat. Her works focus on immigration, identity, and coming-of-age, which is why her plays have been formed at numerous theaters including New York Theater Workshop, Bank Street Theater, and Punto Space, to name a few.
