Jeannie Thib Memorial Fund Reception
Please join us on Thursday, May 24th, to help us celebrate Jeannie Thib’s legacy by introducing you to Helena Rakic who is this year’s recipient of the Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency. Helena worked under the guidance of Luke Painter and Pudy Tong.
Helena states the following about her residency:
The Jeannie Thib Mentorship Residency has given me the opportunity to not only produce an important body of work for my portfolio, but to really take the time to experiment, discuss and learn alongside wonderfully skilled artists. I would not have gotten the results that I did without the help of this residency, and I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity. My work has taken on a momentum and direction that I am very excited about, as an artist and printmaker. Thank you to the donors of the Jeannie Thib Memorial Fund, to Pudy Tong, Luke Painter, and Open Studio, for helping me open the door to this exciting new beginning.
We thank all our donors for their part in supporting the Jeannie Thib Memorial Fund at Open Studio. Together with Bruce Holland, Open Studio is honoured to continue this residency in Jeannie’s name and we look forward to seeing you on May 24th.
