ELAN Residency Project
Read the full story here.

The English-Language Arts Network is pleased to announce a two-phase residency project designed to build links between artistic communities in the Eastern Townships and Montreal.
The first phase of the ELAN Residency Project is currently under way: Montreal-based artist, Katie Jung, is busy working in her studio in Knowlton. She is making connections with local artists, and invites the public to drop by and visit her in her studio at 8 rue Maple, loft #10.For the residency, Katie is creating weavings on a bead-loom that she built herself. Katie’s work is a contemporary take on traditional practices.

Her weavings integrate other aspects of her practice including photography, drawing, collage and craft. She began by weaving photographs using a digital Jaquard loom, and is now integrating photographs into her weavings using an inventive, low-tech approach. The imagery is playful, but also more complex than it may first appear. Katie states “Weaving is a medium loaded with connotation. For centuries it has been inextricably associated with gender politics. I use textile & craft based media in a 3rd wave feminist context as I seek to sabotage transgressive norms by using visual representation and the momentum of the craft movement as tools of social and political resistance."


An Artists’ Talk by Katie Jung will be held at Bishops University Knowlton Campus (99 Knowlton Road) at 12:00 on Friday November 20th. Contact Louise Jamet for more information at ljamet@ubishops.ca


A one-day exhibition of Katie Jung’s work will be held at Galerie Knowlton (49 Victoria Knowlton, Lac-Brome) from 3-5pm on Saturday, November 21st . Contact Francoise Desjardins for more information at (450) 242-1666 or francoise@galerieknowlton.com

Call for submissions for Phase Two:
ELAN is currently accepting applications for the second phase of the project, which will bring an artist from the Townships to Montreal. With support from the Canada Council for the Arts, ELAN will provide an artist from the Eastern Townships with accommodation, working space, and a stipend for living expenses during a four-week residency in Montreal. The resident artist will be invited to give either a workshop or a public talk about his/her artistic practice. The residency will conclude with an exhibition or open studio.

The deadline for submissions is January 29th, 2010. The jury will announce the artist-in-residence by February 15th, 2010. The residency will begin on April 1st, 2010. Applications are open to ELAN members based in the Townships and working in any visual arts media. Those who are not members but are interested in this project are encouraged to join this vibrant network.
