Visiting Mentor Studio Visit

Visiting Mentor Studio Visit


The Visiting Mentor program is an advanced mentorship opportunity for mid-career and established professional artists to connect with an artist, curator, or art critic. Each spring, a mentor travels to Saskatchewan to provide private studio visits and/or critiques to support and strengthen the participants' practices. This program is free to CARFAC members and $45 to non-members.


Sarah Ciurysek is a visual artist exploring the relationships we have with the ground. Soil figures prominently in works that reference graves, voids, and death, as well as the life-giving components of the earth. The heart of Sarah’s practice is photographic, which she combines with installation, video, and audio, and most recently, textiles. Sarah was raised on a farm in northern Alberta and she continues to work with the land there, while studying relationships to place during residencies and exhibitions (most recently at Textilsetur, Iceland and Schleifmühlgasse 12-14, Vienna). Sarah lives in Winnipeg, where she is an Assistant Professor at the School of Art.
