Angeline Schellenberg – 2016 Deep Bay Artists’ Residency

Angeline Schellenberg’s first collection, Tell Them It Was Mozart (Brick Books), is coming in September 2016.  Her chapbook, Roads of Stone, was published by Alfred Gustav Press in 2015. Her poetry appears in various journals including Prairie Fire, CV2, TNQ, Rhubarb, Room, Grain, and Geez.  Her poem, “Black with a Vengeance”, was shortlisted for Arc’s 2015 Poem of the Year.  Angeline lives in Winnipeg with her husband, two teenagers, and a German shepherd/corgi.

Deep Bay Residency Project

Residency dates: July 11 to 24

During her residency, Angeline Schellenberg will work on her collection of prose poems about colour, The Spectral Existence of Magenta.  This collection mines the history of each pigment: its chemical composition, its use in art, the origin of its name and its appearance in nature.  Each hue reveals something about the human story: race, religion, art, science – and across the spectrum – longing.
