Carley Mullally is a textile artist and researcher currently based out of K'jipuktuk / Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her work focuses on the versatility of off-loom textile processes such as rope-making, knotting, beadwork and braiding, and how they can be translated for a wider audience and used interdisciplinarily. Having a deep, personal connection to the three maritime provinces of Canada, she is constantly enamored with the industrial aesthetic of maritime objects as well as the traditional roots they are based from. From the vibrant yellow wire lobster pots, beautifully intricate factory-produced netting, meticulous fly-tying materials to the rigging on tall ships. Because of this, found plastics and fishing debris often find their way into her work.

'I was never bored because I always had the ability to create something': Reflections from Visual Artist Ada Denil
Ada works in a wide variety of mediums in her practice of mainly sculpture and printmaking, which both inherently include drawing. Metal has become a central material in her work, as well as limestone more recently.
In 2020 she was shortlisted for the NSCAD Student Art Awards, and nominated for the ISC Outstanding Student Achievement In Contemporary Sculpture Award. She is the recipient of several scholarships including the NSTT Susan Wood Award, the AJC Abraham Leventhal Memorial Scholarship, David Lanier “Big Hat, No Cattle” Sculpture Scholarship, Margo and Rowland Marshall Award for Sculpture, and the Lyell Cook Scholarship in Sculpture. She has shown work locally in Halifax, NS, at the Corridor Gallery, Argyle Fine Art and the Company House, along with participating in several student showcases at NSCAD University.
