The Brucebo and W.B. Bruce Fine Arts Scholarships

Since 1972, the Brucebo Fine Art Scholarship Foundation of Gotland, Sweden has offered a fine art residency/scholarship to a talented emerging professional Canadian artist providing an inspiring study/work stay in northern Europe on the island of Gotland, located in the Baltic Sea. The Brucebo fine art scholarships hark back to the post-impressionist era in Europe, where two young artists, Caroline Benedicks of Sweden and William Blair Bruce of Hamilton, Canada, met in Paris, married and after many years on the European continent, settled on Gotland Island. With the untimely death of William in 1906 and that of Caroline in 1935, the estate, in the early 70’s, created the Brucebo Fine Art (Scholarship) Foundation, an organization promoting island-based cultural history and fine art. To commemorate the unique Swedish-Canadian link of Caroline’s and William’s marriage and impressive artistry, two annual fine art scholarships for younger, professional Canadian artists were established : The Brucebo Fine Art Summer Residency Scholarship and The William Blair Bruce European Fine Art Travel Scholarship.

The Brucebo funds a three months’ working residency – starting June 1 – at the Brucebo studio cottage in the Själsö fishing village, 7 km north of the Hanseatic and Medieval City of Visby. The scholarship includes the use of the studio cottage, and a stipend of 50 000 SEK (approx. $7,500 CAD) that covers travel expenses from Canada – Gotland (return). The scholar now also has the opportunity to extend their stay until October 1. Upon leaving the island, the artist is requested to donate an artwork made during their summer residency with the Canadian Collection at the Brucebo museum.

The William Blair Bruce Travel Scholarship provides 30.000 SEK (approx. $4,500 CAD) for a European research sejour, to be undertaken within the next year. The tour is based on an approved Fine Art-related investigative project. As a final part of the ‘travel scholarship’ the recipient must visit Visby via Stockholm. While in Visby, she/he will give a public lecture sponsored by the Foundation on the investigative theme pursued during her/his recent European travel.

Eligibility: The Brucebo foundation would like to support emerging and early-mid career artists. Eligible applicants must be Canadian Citizens who have studied fine arts within the last ten years. Self-taught artists with less than ten years of exhibition experience may also apply.

Deadline for applications: January 31st of each year. The scholarships are administered by Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Art , Associate Dean’s Office, Montreal and the Chair of the Brucebo Fine Art Evaluation Committee.

Say Hello to the 2018/19 Media Art Scholars!

We’re so excited to announce the participants for the 31st Media Art Scholarship program. You can read more about the program here.

 

NAT chantel

NAT chantel is a primarily self-taught artist who engages repetitive processes to recall memory and personal history as a way to reclaim the body and voice. NAT has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature. Through mentorship with interdisciplinary artist Kate Ward, NAT was selected into the 2017-2018 VANS Mentorship Program, and the Summer Professional Development Residency with NSCCD (2018.) She is a Nova Scotia Talent Trust scholarship recipient (2017 & 2018) and an active member in Black Artists Network of Nova Scotia, Visual Arts Nova Scotia, and Nova Scotia Basketry Guild.

“Echoes in Memory”, is a response-based, sculptural sound installation that explores the acoustic and resonant potential of copper. By supporting vibrations and energetic sound heard only through amplification, NAT will investigate ways to visualize sonic voice and shape cocoon forms that become vessels for carrying – vessels for containment – vessels for holding.

Lorraine Albert

Lorraine Albert is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and designer whose practice is rooted in lateral conceptual ideation. Her practice is found where notions of space (place), body (movement), and time (pace) converge. She has a degree in Graphic Design (Dawson College), a Bachelor of Fine Art (Concordia University) and a Masters of Fine Art (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University). Her work has appeared in various festivals, galleries, and sites within Canada and Australia.

Silent Solo Symphony is a fully immersive experiential installation that makes use of motion sensors and participant’s body movement to create a musical composition.

Regine Tiu

Regine Tiu is a Taiwanese-Filipino immigrant and sexual assault survivor. Having resided in many countries and cities in her lifetime, she continually explores the liminality of self and home.

Not your jolie poupée is an attempt to articulate the disjointed living experience of a female body. With a mixture of print, media and sculpture, this project aims to defy the male gaze and simultaneously eradicate erroneous cultural stereotypes.

Julie Robert

Julie Robert is a ballet and contemporary dancer originally from Montréal, Québec. She graduated from the professional dance program at l’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal in 2015. She is currently a dance artist with the Mocean Dance company and teaches ballet and contemporary dance in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Still Life is a video-based installation which will seek to juxtapose still life with movement/dance into a tableau vivant, creating an immersive space that redefines our relationship with time and heightens our sensitivity to movement. By playing with idleness, subtle repetition and image speeds, the footage will create a durational, multi-channel video installation that will be seamlessly looped, diminishing the awareness of time.

Carrie Allison

Carrie will be working towards building interactive websites for her art projects, The Shubenacadie River Beading Project and 150. The Shubenacadie River Beading Project is a collaborative community project that stands in alliance with the Stop Alton Gas group and activates environmental activism through beading. The Shubenacadie River Beading Project’s website will include participants stories relating to the river and/or their experience participating. 150 is an interactive art installation consisting of one hundred and fifty beaded bracelets that depict a number relating to an event in Indigenous history. 150 highlight pressing and disturbing histories that are shared by many Indigenous peoples across Canada. Viewers access a legend through scanning an integrated QR code that directs the viewer to numbers150.com. By adding videos, audio, and a conversational element to this website Carrie hopes to include more voices and perspectives in this shared history. These interactive websites will enable viewers to participate from home as well as in gallery spaces.

Carrie Allison is an Indigenous mixed-race visual artist born and raised on unceded and unsurrendered Coast Salish Territory (Vancouver, BC). Situated in K’jipuktuk since 2010, Allison’s practice responds to her maternal Cree and Metis ancestry, thinking through intergenerational cultural loss and acts of resilience, resistance, and activism, while also thinking through notions of allyship, kinship and visiting. Allison’s practice is rooted in research and pedagogical discourses. Her work seeks to reclaim, remember, recreate and celebrate her ancestry through visual discourses. Allison looks to Indigenous, mixed-race, antiracist, feminist and environmental theorists to critically examine the world around her.

Allison holds a Masters in Fine Art, a Bachelor in Fine Art and a Bachelor in Art History from NSCAD University.

Lux Habrich

Having moved to Atlantic Canada in 2012 to complete an Interdisciplinary BFA at NSCAD University, Lux found herself drawn to the intimate narrative potential in tactile craft processes, due to their highly political nature as a domestic, feminine and often undervalued form of production. Inspired by her mixed racial and cultural identity, Lux externalizes intense internal grievances, to open up collective issues and qualities of larger community struggle to receive moments of healing and empowerment.

Sediment of a Child (her eyes cut like flowers) is an ephemeral clay installation capturing a process of material deterioration. Layered with fragmented and nostalgic imagery of girlhood, embodied trauma and many tender words – she seeks to emulate the chaotic nature of memory and the many subconscious, untold stories and unspoken legacies that live inside each of us.

PluralEyes 4.1.4 software is now installed the Online and Audio Suites!

 

PluralEyes quickly and easily syncs video from multiple camera angles (when you have audio guide tracks), or dual-system audio to video (say you recorded your sound on a Zoom and your video on a 60D). Those “multiple camera angles” can be multiple takes, if those takes have roughly the same audio track (like a music video). This can save a lot of time. The synced timelines you make in PluralEyes can be exported to Premiere or Final Cut (even if you need to use versions of those programs we don’t have).
