Artist Talk with FARR AiR Emily Critch
We are approaching the end of our inaugural FARR Residency Program! These past few months we’ve seen work that inspires, challenges, and encourages artists from across the province. We’re delighted that Emily Critch will be sharing her practice in an online artist talk. Along with her FARR Residency, Emily has been busy developing her art practice by working towards her MFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice from OCAD University, while fulfilling her position as the St. Michael’s Printshop 2020 Don Wright Scholar. We can’t wait to hear her insights about not only what the FARR Program has offered her, but the rest of her activities as well.
