Patrick Dunford is in residence at the Deep Bay Cabin August 3 – 9

patrick-dunford-webThe Artist: Patrick is a Winnipeg-based artist who has an MFA from Concordia University in Montreal. He has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions across Canada.

Residency Project: Patrick will work on a series of paintings and drawings that focus on the natural and human-made landscapes of Riding Mountain National Park. His work draws on both direct observation and subjective experiences of nature and place. Patrick will explore the sites of work camps built for conscientious objectors and German POWs in the park, and look at how these have influenced its material and cultural history.

Alison Davis is in residence at the Deep Bay Cabin July 6 – 19

alison-davis-webThe Artist: Alison Davis is an animator based in Winnipeg. While she always produces work frame-by-frame, her animated shorts range far and wide in both subject and technique. From personal experience to fantastical worlds, narrative to experimental, digitally refined to entirely hand drawn, her works explore the vast imaginative and visual possibilities of animation as a medium.

Residency Project: Alison will be researching and developing a series of experimental, hand-painted, animated sequences on the subject of parasites, the process by which one organism uses the body of another to further its own survival while returning nothing to the host. Using parasitism as the focal point, the project will explore the porous, permeable and multi-faceted nature of the body and by extension the pliability of the mind.…

The Arariel-gordon-webtist: Ariel Gordon is a Winnipeg writer. Her second collection of poetry, Stowaways (Palimpsest Press), won the 2015 Lansdowne Prize for Poetry at the Manitoba Book Awards. When not being bookish, Ariel likes tromping through the woods and taking macro photographs of mushrooms.

Residency Project: Ariel will be working on creative non-fiction about urban forests. The essays use Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Forest, a never-developed tract of aspen parkland in Charleswood, as a springboard to talking about our attitudes towards urban/nature, from invasive species like purple loosestrife and leaping carp to urban adaptors like the coyotes living in our garages and the deer stripping our gardens.…
