Call for Submissions: MAG Summer Artist Residency 2020

Call for Submissions: MAG Summer Artist Residency 2020

The Mitchell Art Gallery invites Canadian and international artists to apply for the second year of the MAG Summer Residency Program. We encourage applicants with interdisciplinary, non-traditional creative practices to apply.

This residency works to support an artist with space and time to initiate or further a body of work, and bridge their practice with a local community, whether a project connects to a relevant local issue or history, or has participatory or socially-engaged elements. The residency is intended for artists interested in the reciprocal learning opportunity from encountering a community or public, with the MAG as the home base for those encounters.

Application deadline: March 1, 2020

The John and Maggie Mitchell Art Gallery is located within MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. We are a public gallery committed to featuring diverse artistic and curatorial perspectives, and supporting critical discourses in contemporary art. We are currently accepting submissions for our 2020 Summer Residency Program that will provide individual artists/artist collectives with the space and time to initiate or further a body of work that connects and engages with local communities. Previous artists in residence at the MAG have included Halie Finney (Edmonton), Florence Yee (Toronto), and Olivia Chow (Hong Kong).

Those interested in learning more and/or applying can do so via the MAG website:

About the Artist – Sandi Komst

Sandi has dedicated herself to painting and teaching in oils, watercolours, acrylics, and mixed media for over 30 years. Well known and loved in her home base of Prince Edward Island, with a network of colleagues across Canada and internationally, she has a strong presence and influence through frequent juried group and solo exhibitions, as well as workshops. An award-winning artist, her work hangs in private and corporate collections around the world including Canada House in London England, the Canadian Embassy in Russia, PEI’s Government House, and the Atlantic Ballet of Canada. Her personal gallery is Out of Our Minds Gallery, located in PEI. Past studies with other accomplished, internationally known artists combine with an enduring drive to constantly hone and experiment with techniques, products, and materials – infusing her workshops with energy and excitement. Landscapes, figuratives, and still lifes are her subjects; constantly evolving and re-imagined yet instantly recognizable. Sandi particularly enjoys experimenting with the reductive method. Having experimented and evolved as an artist so much, she combines her personal abilities of encouragement, humour, and patience with deep technical teaching skills, delivering a thoroughly enjoyable and productive workshop.
