2016 Art on Paper Awards

28 Jun 2016 Visual Arts Exhibition

My fine art print Spring Torment Blue has been selected as one of the finalists for the 2016 Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards.

To-date, my work has only been exhibited in Moncton, on a limited basis, via the Moncton Gallery's Annual Juried Exhibition. Thus, selection for this group exhibition will provide gallery exposure in Nova Scotia and Québec. I'm also hopeful it will introduce my work to collectors and curators in both of those provinces and, potentially, both nationally and internationally.

The Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards are "international awards to recognize, to exhibit and to reward the accomplishments of Contemporary Artist's work on or with paper". Selected finalists are included in two group exhibitions: Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, from 20 August to 10 September 2016; and, Montréal, Québec, from 30 September to 14 October 2016. A number of awards, including residencies and cash prizes, are also available. The Parrsboro exhibition will be shown at the Main & Station gallery, 168 Main Street, with a vernissage at 3:00 pm, 20 August 2016. The Montréal exhibition will be at 141 Ann Street, Montreal.

All submissions to the 2016 Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards (not just the finalists) may be viewed in the online Catalogue of Entries.

Arts Grant Award

16 July 2015 Professional Development Visual Arts

I am the recipient of a 2015 Creation "C" grant from the New Brunswick Arts Board.

The "C" category of grants is:

"for emerging artists who are striving to achieve a professional level in their discipline and who can demonstrate their commitment to the development of specialized skills or knowledge in their discipline as well as their commitment to the achievement of a professional level in their discipline through training, mentorship or peer recognition, and who are producing a growing repertoire or body of work".

My goals for the project are to:

...further develop and hone a unique and personal artistic vision, which emphasizes a minimalist and fine art approach to landscape photography. I seek to: represent typical vistas in atypical ways; capture alternate perspectives of iconic views; isolate and emphasize smaller elements within a scene; and, reduce scenes to forms, patterns or colours. When possible, I prefer multiple visits to ensure I can photograph my subjects in the desired combinations of light, weather and season, or to capture them in varying conditions, thereby demonstrating an evolution of subject and the fluidity of a static medium. I would like to end the project with approximately 20 minimalist and/or fine art landscape photographs consisting of two to four series of 5 to 10 images each, one of which will result from my artistic residency in June. In the long term, this project will help to: provide a stronger direction for my larger body of work; expand my portfolio both generally and through the creation of multiple series; and, promote greater interest in my work. The bulk of the work is expected to take place between April and October 2015.
