About Winter Islands 2018
Point is seeking project proposals from artists working in all media for the
Winter Islands Artist-In-Residence program for 2018.
Now in its third year,
Winter Island is a unique, juried, artist-in-residence program aimed at emerging, mid-career and, established artists, hosted at Artscape Gibraltar Point, an
artist residency located on the picturesque Toronto Islands.
The aim of the Winter Island program is
to recognize four artists annually who have demonstrated a strong and unique
artistic voice while working in Canada’s visual arts community and provide them
with a month of distraction-free studio time to create and/or develop a new and
exciting work, or body of work that seeks to engage with and/or activate the
artist community at Artscape Gibraltar Point and the Toronto Islands.
Selected artists will have the opportunity
to present these works/projects to the public as a part of a Winter Island Group Exhibition to take place at the conclusion of the residency series at
Artscape Youngplace Hallway Galleries, Vitrines and, select Flex studios, in late May/Early June 2018.
