NAT chantel in Echoes: Craft Nova Scotia Summer Professional Development Residency Exhibition

artist NAT chantel.
NAT chantel presents her Craft Nova Scotia Summer Professional Development Residency work with Annabel Biro, Kelsey Borden, Krista Grunsky, Shaya Ishaq, Songhee Lee, Jiaqi Li, and Katja Spoerri in an exhibition titled Echoes.

The exhibition opens August 30 and runs until September 16.

NAT is an African Nova Scotian emerging artist in multimedia, textiles and sculpture. Her work speaks to imposed societal structures that inform identity, and the erasure of body and self through communication, and conditions within the environment. 

NAT received Talent Trust scholarships in 2017 and 2018. She recently participated in Visual Arts Nova Scotia’s Mentorship Programwhere she exhibited her resulting work alongside Talent Trust scholarship recipient Lux Habrich at the Craig Gallery in Dartmouth, NS.

From Craft Nova Scotia: “Echoes brings together eight emerging, pre-professional and self-directed artists who have used the time and studio space of the Summer Professional Development Residency to craft a body of work while exploring individual style and technique. This group exhibition reflects individual histories, responses to movement, and mirrors material process in form. It is a conversation – a call and answer – created by individuals working alongside one another.”
