Off the Grid

Working From Outside Major Centres

Can you grow and maintain a career in the visual arts while living outside major centres? This webinar focuses on two prairie artists, Peter von Tiesenhausen + Heather Benning and how they build their art careers.

Based in Demmi , Alberta, Peter von Tiesenhausen is a multi-disciplinary artist. Over three decades, von Tiesenhausen’s art practice has continuously evolved. Sculpture, painting, video, performance, land art, community action, and installation make up his rather elusive art practice.

Born in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Heather Benning has worked as both a farmer and a foundry technician in Scotland. Her site-specific art practice involves sculpture, architecture and the landscape. Register Through Eventbrite

New Canadians: Building Careers in the Arts

What is it like to try to establish an art career in Canada when you came to Canada as an immigrant? What sort of barriers are encountered and how do you get past them? Two New Canadians artists: Yong Fei Guan + Patrick B. Fernandez share their stories in tonight’s webinar.

A visual artist and a writer, Yong Fei Guan is Chinese-Canadian and has lived in Canada for just over a decade. In her work, Guan explores her identity, world politics, and the way these relate to environmental issues.

Born in the Philippines, Patrick B. Fernandez has made Regina his home. Fernandez’s surreal way of looking at and responding to the world deals with where we live, politics, what humanity means, environmental change and loss. Register Through Eventbrite
