Centre[3] for Print and Media Arts member Neah Kelly will be in residence at Martha Street Studio in April. She will present an artist talk on Saturday April 13, 2pm. This presentation is free to attend and open to the public. ASL interpretation can be requested prior to 5pm on Wednesday April 10 by contacting us at askmartha@printmakers.mb.ca.

Neah Kelly was raised on Vancouver Island, Canada. Her work is concerned with the circuitous nature of creativity, and how endless iterations can be found or generated, explored and capitalized on through the use of constraints and an obsessive tenacity. She received a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal and an MFA from Indiana University. Neah has exhibited widely across the U.S. and Canada, participating in group shows at Woman Made Gallery (Chicago), Site: Brooklyn (New York), and the winter 2018 and summer 2017 editions of the New Prints Exhibits at IPCNY (New York). Recent exhibitions include the Screenprint Biennial 2018 (Albany, NY), a two-person show at Noise Gallery (Bloomington, IN), and a solo show at The Fifty Fifty Arts Collective (Victoria, BC).

This year she’ll be participating in the Bonnie McComb Kreye (Victoria, BC) and KKV Gravik Studio Printmaking and Sculpture (Malmö, Sweden) residencies, as well as a two-person show at Atelier Circulaire (Montreal, QC) in the fall. She currently lives in Hamilton, ON.

Martha Street Studio member Bram Keast will be in residence at Centre[3], Hamilton, Ontario in late March. He will present an artist talk on Friday April 12 at 126 James Street North, Hamilton, Ontario. Please contact Centre[3] for more details.

Bram is a painter and printmaker from Winnipeg. His practice is a slow process of response to and interpretation of his environment and emotional state, interests and imagination. His recent work explores sensory knowledge from a disability perspective, slipping into the space of instability between perception and understanding. Through constructed environments that create a space of meaningful ambiguity, he explores the ways sensory information is mediated by the conditions of experience, gesturing towards a form of knowledge in which understanding is both fixed and in flux.
