Artist in Residence

To mark Taste’s move to Aquidneck Island and our ever-deepening commitment to connect local artists with the clients we serve, we are proud to announce our Artist in Residence program.

About the Program

Our program consists of a six month long 'stay', exclusive to one artist. During their time with us, we will display their work in our exclusive House of Taste and design a program specific to them and their art. As our clients begin designing their homes and growing their art collections, the artist in residence's work is front and center and stamped with the approval of our high caliber standards.

Our new space brings the opportunity to expand upon an already successful practice; It is a dedicated client center, perfectly appointed for day-long work session throughout the design process. Finishes, fixtures, building materials, technology, fine furnishings, and art composed in our House of Taste will enable our clients to make informed home decisions in a comfortable and inspiring environment. It is simultaneously a permanent show room for our artist - exclusively for Taste clients, and available to them throughout their home planning experience.

Innaugural Artist in Residence

Kelly Milukas

Sincere thanks to our friend Kelly for being our first artist in residence and for helping us to shape the program. Her passion to incorporate and plan for art early in the design process will benefit our clients and the artists we work with for generations to come. She is an award-winning working and teaching artist whose work has been globally exhibited. Big, bold, brave color, shape and texture, define her broad and diverse subject matter.

Kelly collaborated closely with team taste to imagine a unique program for the artist in residency experience. Kelly will have direct involvement with our design team in order to incorporate art as a key element to our design process. She will act as a creative consultant at client work sessions, providing all involved the opportunity to learn and collaborate.
