Announcing the Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency
Open Studio is pleased to announce the Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency, an opportunity for a printmaker in the early stages of their career. The recipient will receive studio access and materials, along with mentoring sessions from an appropriate established artist to develop their practice and broaden community contacts.
Through the generous support of Jeannie Thib’s family, friends and colleagues, Open Studio is proud to provide this annual residency for emerging printmakers. The Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency is awarded to an artist in the early stages of their professional career, who has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to their practice.
This residency is in memory of Jeannie Thib (1955-2013), a talented artist and cherished member of the Open Studio community. Thib was born in North Bay, Ontario in 1955 and obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts at York University in Toronto in 1979. Inspired by her experiences in the wilderness of Northern Ontario, her work included ornamented sculptures, installations and prints. As Jeannie was a great supporter of other artists, long established or emerging, a mentoring focused residency is a fitting and relevant way to honour Jeannie Thib’s legacy.
