WHO’S BEEN HERE?
I had a great time roaming around the corn fields with Windsor-based artist Alana Bartol to capture some images for her ongoing work Forms of Awareness.
Painter Jan Ollner worked on what he called his “screen play” for an upcoming series of paintings. He also drew a number of these beautiful tree images with ink on paper.
Toronto-based artist Emily Smit-Dicks worked on collage works, which pieced together many bits of the human anatomy – hands, feet, muscles, tissues.
Have you ever wanted to make your own board game? Well illustrator Jamiyla Lowe started doing just that while here for her week-long residency. She painted a number of wild characters which will become the main illustrations to her own version of snakes and ladders.
WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
So much crafting! I have completed a number of projects including these pillow covers! Plus, Kyle has been working on a fourth silkscreen print to go with his new series of works.
We are counting down the days until our Open Call for the National Residency Award is over. Then we will work through the applications and pick the first recipient for this new award.
