Carley Mullally is a Halifax-based textile artist and researcher originally from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. With an interest in collaboration, she has worked with artists and designers across disciplines to create projects for sustainable product design, architecture, medical use and fashion. Her work has been shown at the Hong Kong Medical Museum, Hong Kong; the ArcInTex Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland and at the Anna Leonowens Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Inspired by her upbringing throughout the three Maritime provinces, Carley has been working with both traditional and unconventional ideas of rope-making and boat craft by not only creating ropes – but also the equipment used to make them. During the Craft LAIR she will be setting up rope twisting and braiding devices for the public to engage with, and will document the process of self-discovery in order to inform new designs and design methodologies.

Mullally received her BFA in Textiles and Fashion from NSCAD University, before moving to London, England to pursue her Masters in Woven Textiles from the Royal College of Art. Since graduating with her MA in 2018, she has been teaching in both the textiles and fashion departments at NSCAD University, and has held workshops at the Struts Gallery in Sackville, New Brunswick, the LaHave Weaving Studio in Lunenburg and to a cub scouts troop in her home of Pictou County.

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: www.macewan.ca/MitchellArtGallery

Any questions can be sent to Carolyn Jervis or Jamelie Bachaalani at mitchellartgallery@macewan.ca
