An exhibit of works by the 2019 Focused Mentorship Program presented in partnership with aceartinc. Internal Investigations brings together recent work from 6 artists in Manitoba who took part in MAWA’s focussed Mentorship Program, a 3-month intensive development opportunity, with mentor Barb Hunt. This program provided an opportunity to be introduced to the work of new artists, new artwork, new ideas and new media at the hands of Barb Hunt. Artists experimented with using unusual media, created and discussed new work, explored ideas and networked,
and supported and challenged each other. Internal Investigations focuses on each artist’s exploration of material research as an avenue to express a theme that is important to them. This exhibition features the work of program mentees Allison Moore, Dawn Knight, Barb Bottle, Melanie Matheson, Loricia Pacholko-Matheson, and Briony Haig. Many thanks to aceartinc for this exhibition opportunity.
