“I received NSTT scholarships in 1991 and 1992, funds which made my MFA studies in Chicago possible. Being a student in Chicago was absolutely formative — a challenging institution, an exceptional cohort of fellow MFA candidates, and time in a great city with great collections of historical and contemporary art. I am very grateful to the Talent Trust for their assistance.”
Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at MSVU Art Gallery in Halifax.
