Winter 2021 Artist-in-Residence: Inbal Newman

Introducing our Winter 2021
Artist-in-Residence: Inbal Newman

 


 Our School is delighted to welcome Artist and Designer, Inbal Newman to our School. Inbal will be in residency with us until May 15, 2021 — we can’t wait to see what she creates! 

It is the intent of the our School’s Artist-in-Residence program to provide a space for emerging artists, including recent graduates, to enable them to develop and enhance their practice in their chosen medium. To learn more please visit: lunenburgarts.org/artists-in-residence

Inbal Newman is an artist and designer whose wanderings have currently landed her in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Growing from professional experience as both a printmaker and tall ship sailor, she takes a transient and interdisciplinary approach to creative research. Inbal particularly prefers to spend time in small communities situated upon or adjacent to water, since these constantly shifting environments have the most potential to reveal new discoveries and fuel curiosity. Her creative process involves maintaining artistic secrecy or “soft espionage,” and methods of repetition – from printmaking and performance rehearsal, to typewriting, interview, and crochet. The outcomes of this work reflect a fascination with semi-permanent records of impermanent places and situations, such as hand-poked tattoos, personally significant maps, and found material textile explorations including garments, doilies, and blankets. Inbal’s work also pursues her interests in observing, recording, and sharing narratives, which takes the forms of sound recording, reenactment, adventure logbooks, and workshops.

To quote Inbal’s proposal to our School: “Years ago, while sailing on a schooner in New York, I first learned about the tradition of a “Captain’s Personal Endsign.” Ship flags indicate information across long distances and the captain’s endsign signifies the captain’s origins (home state on most American sailing vessels – however the woman captaining the schooner remembered some skippers holding mini flag ceremonies during crew switchovers to hoist their personal flag, lovingly hand-sewn by their devoted wife). It made me think: Where are the personal endsigns for all the women captains and seafarers forgotten or often left out of history, and for women seafarers today? And who would lovingly sew personal endsigns for them? This sparked my idea for a limited series of Captain’s Personal Endsigns for women sailors and share their stories in a striking visual manner.”

Call for Artists: VANS in Residence and PAINTS workshop proposals

VANS in Residence at Wonder’neath

VANS is accepting applications from professional visual artists for VANS in Residence at Wonder’neath. The artist must be willing and able to commit 40 hours per week to the 5-week planning and residency. Please note, for this residency priority will be given to BIPOC individuals and 2SLGBTQIA+ artists. Residencies may be used for research, development and production of ongoing or new bodies of work.

VANS in Residence provides a studio space, a stipend to support the artist to work full time for 4 weeks plus one week of planning, and support from VANS and Wonder’neath in outreach. Time will be split between the artist’s own work (creation, research or both) and to community based work. The outreach will need to be done by distance, either by packages sent out to families in the community, or by online workshops made available.⠀


This VANS in Residence will take place from March 1 – 28, 2021. The planning week can take place anytime up to February 21, 2021. A stipend of $2500 will be paid to the artist and a studio in the Wonder’neath Studios at 2482 Maynard Street, in Halifax, NS. VANS in Residence must be a VANS member, but you can join at the time of application.

Deadline: January 18 at 5pm.


A call for remote PAINTS workshop proposals

The PAINTS program is seeking initial sketches/outlines for workshops that you could lead remotely. All workshops will be either online in real time via Google classrooms, or facilitated by the teacher with paper prompts provided by the artist as a guide to take students through a process. We’re approaching all workshops as one-off live events.

For 2021, we want to add four more to the selection that can be offered to schools and we need workshops for students at all grade levels. From these initial ideas, four will be chosen to be developed into full workshops. At the second stage, selected artists will be paid a stipend of $160 to fully flesh out the workshop description/plan. There will be support from Andrea Ritchie, the PAINTS coordinator in doing this work.

To more closely align our fee structure with CARFAC, the hourly facilitation rate for PAINTS projects is now set at $80/per hour. You must be a PAINTS artist to apply.

Please read the application details on the PAINTS website and contact PAINTS Coordinator Andrea Ritchie for more information at paints@visualarts.ns.ca.

Deadline: January 18 at 5pm.
