  • Mar. 12, 2014 10:00 a.m.

Submitted by Gwaii Haanas –With more than 200 inquires and 50 amazing applications from all across Canada, it was difficult to choose the three visual artists who will head to Gwaii Haanas this year for the third artists in residency program. But thanks to the dedicated selection committee members from the Haida Gwaii Museum and Gwaii Haanas (including a member of Gwaii Haanas’s Archipelago Management Board), three creative individuals were selected. We are pleased to announce that Ariane Medley, a young weaver from Masset; Charlie Easton, a painter from Vancouver and Jayne Patrick Simpson, a mixed-media artist from Abbotsford were the successful candidates. Alternates were also selected: April White (local), Steven Fick (Ottawa), and Ilja Herb (Victoria).The visiting artists will offer art workshops in early June, and all artists will present a slideshow about their trip once they return from Gwaii Haanas. An exhibition of works inspired by their time in Gwaii Haanas will take place this fall at the Haida Gwaii Museum.
