Come see How We Are Talking

I was one of four lucky local artists who was chosen to participate as a mentor in the 2015-2016 Visual Arts Nova Scotia Mentorship Program. I was paired up with the wildly talented Anna Taylor and had a fantastic time reflecting on both our practices in myriad ways over the past year. This program culminates in a group exhibition every year, and ours is on June 29-August 7 at the Craig Gallery in Dartmouth, NS.
