Studio Visits with Alyssa Fearon (AGSM)

  • November 29, 2019 – November 30, 2019
  • Application Deadline: November 13, 2019 at 4:00pm

For mid-career and senior MAWA members of all genders.

Application deadline: Wednesday, November 13 by 4pm. 

Studio visits for successful applicants will take place by appointment on Friday, November 29 & Saturday, November 30.

Artists who have exhibited professionally and are MAWA members have the opportunity to apply for a studio visit with Alyssa Fearon, Curator of Brandon’s Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba (AGSM). Fearon is new to the province and is excited to learn more about the Manitoba visual arts community, with an eye to programming at the AGSM in the future. This is an excellent chance to get your work in front of someone who might want to include it in an exhibition.

Fearon will be selecting the artists she will meet with to ensure that the dialogue will be engaging and fruitful for both parties, based on common concerns and interests.

Email applications to programs@mawa.ca and put “Studio Visit 2019” in the subject line.

Please email a single PDF document labelled with your name and Studio Visit (e.g., Jane Doe Studio Visit). It should contain:

  • a one-paragraph description of what you make and the ideas that drive your work;
  • a line or two about why you would like to have a studio visit with Fearon;
  • 5 images of your artwork with caption information.

If you are not already a MAWA member, go to https//mawa.ca/membership. Membership is $30/year or $15 for those with low income.

If you are an emerging artist, are not accepted for a studio visit or would prefer to meet Fearon in a group setting, consider coming to “Tough Love,” details here.
