CARFAC Artist Mentor Studio Visits
April 6, 2019 @ 12:00 am - April 7, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Studio visits by Heather Benning, artists’ mentor sent to us by CARFAC. Heather will be visiting the studios of local artists, specifically to address the challenges of being an artist in the non-urban environment of northern Sask.
Heather Benning currently lives and works in Swift Current, though much of her career has been spent in rural Saskatchewan. She completed a bachelor of fine arts degree from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2004, and a master of sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art in 2009. Between her degrees, Benning returned to Saskatchewan, where she completed several large-scale, site-specific installations. She has had numerous solo and group shows throughout Canada (Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Ontario) and abroad (United States, Spain, Germany, Scotland, England and France). Heather’s work has been reviewed in Canadian Art Magazine (Spring 2005, 2011), Sculpture Magazine (Spring 2008), Galleries West (2009), Espace (Winter 2009/2010), Uppercase Magazine (Issue 8), Studio Magazine, and The National Post.
