“I am grateful for not only the financial, but also the artistic faith the Nova Scotia Talent Trust had in me at such a volatile point in my practice.
This crucial support came at the beginning of my career, assisting me through the first rocky year post-graduation to continue learning through a community residency and private mentorship.
More than anything, their support was a validation of my creative merit; quieting the insecurities I had about choosing to pursue a professional career in the arts. It is an honour to exhibit alongside artists that have been a great influence on my work.”
Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at MSVU Art Gallery in Halifax.
