Charley Young in First You Dream: Celebrating 75 Years of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust


CHARLEY YOUNG: NS TALENT TRUST SCHOLARSHIP 2012


“In 2012, I was the recipient of the Talent Trust’s Lieutenant Governor’s Award and the Charlotte Wilson-Hammond/VANS Award presented by the Nova Scotia Talent Trust. I continue to be honoured by receiving the scholarship which allowed me to pursue my graduate studies at the Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine. 



During this time, I dedicated myself to my studio practice and completed numerous artist-in-residence programs including The Arctic Circle Program which took me to Svalbard, Norway to create some of the work visible in this exhibition. 




Currently, I am Regular Part-Time Faculty at NSCAD University, where I teach printmaking and drawing. I often work with students to build their professional practice and often refer students to the opportunities available through the Talent Trust. I am truly grateful to the NSTT for their support of artists in the early stages of their career.” 

Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at MSVU Art Gallery in Halifax.
