Art Opening Invitation: FMP Showcase at aceartinc.

Last year, I was fortunate to be one of eight emerging female artists accepted to participate in the 2012-13 Foundation Mentorship Program (FMP) through MAWA (Mentoring Artist’s For Women’s Art). For the past year, we have shared our creativity, art and many experiences, and have chosen to celebrate our group with a showcase of work developed while participating in the program.

Please join us at the opening of the FMP Showcase on Friday, October 25 between 7-10pm at aceartinc. You’ll be treated to new work in a variety of mediums from painting, prints and photography, to video and mixed-media. Snacks will also be served.


The FMP Showcase is presented by: Sasha Amaya, Janessa Brunet, Amanda Damsma, Elise Dawson, Sarah Hodges-Kolisnyk, Megan Krause, Gerry Oliver, and Natasha Peterson. These mentees have spent a year under the guidance of four established and internationally-exhibited female artists and mentors Aganetha Dyck, Val Klassen, Lisa Stinner-Kun, and Suzie Smith.

The exhibit runs until October 25 – November 8 at aceartinc. (290 McDermot Ave., 2nd floor)

MAWA has supported women visual artists through mentorship, education and critical dialogue. The Foundation Mentorship Program is a year-long program in which senior artists share their experience and expertise with developing artists in a peer-support learning environment.  It is designed to help women in the visual arts develop skills and define their decision-making philosophies, and to provide access to the information, resources and support they need to realize their goals and build their practices.
