Approach the world with imagination
Artist. Learner. Compelled to create.
There’s nothing like checking the mailbox each week for that letter you’ve been waiting for. Hands shake as you struggle to fit the key in the slot. Desperately, you reach into the black void of the mailbox for the last envelope. The thing is—you don’t know if that letter is going to bring good news (like funding for your next art project) or bad (we regret to inform you…).
“It’s always a challenging moment when you open a letter that states you were unsuccessful in your application for an exhibition or a grant,” says Darci Mallon, artist and associate professor with MacEwan University’s Fine Art program.
