Full Gestures brings together recent artworks from graduates of MAWA’s 2018-2019 Foundation Mentorship Program (FMP). FMP artists are paired with mentors to receive critical feedback, create and discuss new work, explore ideas and network. Artists seek an opportunity such as this when they are ready to take on new challenges and push their work in a new direction, sometimes finding themselves in new or unknown territory.

Mentors Brenna George, Amy Karlinsky, Erika MacPherson, Gurpreet Sehra and Helene Vosters had the privilege of working with Hillary Beaton, Jillian Groening, Briony Haig, Christina Hajjar, Kayla Jeanson, Christina McKay, melanie monoceros, Farideh Saffari and Poonam Singh throughout the past year.
