Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency

Deadline for Submissions: 11:59 EST May 1, 2017

This residency was launched in 2016 in memory of Jeannie Thib (1955-2013), a talented artist and cherished member of the Open Studio community. Thib was born in North Bay, Ontario in 1955 and obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts at York University in Toronto in 1979. Inspired by her experiences in the wilderness of Northern Ontario, her work included ornamented sculptures, installations and prints.  As Jeannie was a great supporter of other artists, long established and emerging, a mentoring focused residency is a fitting and relevant way to honour Jeannie Thib’s legacy. This residency is open to a printmaker in the early stages of their career, who has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to their practice within the last one to five years.
