About the Residency: 

Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre and Quest Art School + Gallery are pleased to announce a collaborative artists-in-residence programme titled Maples & Other Delights: The Wonders of Wye Marsh.

This residency is being undertaken by three regional artists: Holly Archer, Kasia Latos, and Aaron White. Beginning the week of Aug. 9, the artists have been exploring, engaging with and interpreting the natural beauty and ecological systems at Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre, with a focus on maple trees.

Members of the public can meet with the artists while they work. Times that the artists will be on site will vary from week to week and may be weather-dependent. Quest and Wye Marsh will post on our social media times that the artists will be on site.

Wye Marsh and Quest have a history of successfully collaborating together on other projects and we welcome this opportunity to bring together art and nature.

The residency will culminate in an exhibition of the work by the artists at Wye Marsh. The event will take place on Saturday, September 25th at 2:00pm as part of the province-wide Culture Days Celebration. The event will take place in the Wye Marsh’s Display Hall, with the artists speaking at 2:30pm. Guests are welcome to drop-in any time between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. 

Wye Marsh and Quest Art gratefully acknowledge the support from the Government of Canada – Building Communities Through Arts & Heritage funding for this project.
