Off the Grid

Working from Outside Major Centres

The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Date: May 6, 2020, 6:30 – 8:00pm MDT
Cost: Free for CARFAC Alberta and Saskatchewan members, $25 for everyone else

Can you grow and maintain a career in the visual arts while living outside major centres? This webinar focuses on two prairie artists, Peter von Tiesenhausen and Heather Benning and how they build their art careers.

Based in Demmi, Alberta, Peter von Tiesenhausen is a multi-disciplinary artist. Over three decades, von Tiesenhausen’s art practice has continuously evolved. Sculpture, painting, video, performance, land art, community action, and installation make up his rather elusive art practice.

Born in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Heather Benning has worked as both a farmer and a foundry technician in Scotland. Her site-specific art practice involves sculpture, architecture and the landscape.
