Anna Golding is this year’s scholarship winner. She is from Dr. Frank Hayden Secondary School in Burlington, Ontario and will study at the University of Guelph earning a fine arts degree. You can find Anna in Studio 9 along with artist Ian Cowling.
Anna quotes: “I create art that is an embodiment of myself. It begins as a piece pf me, then evolves in such a way that the end result can be carefully traced back to the original idea. One could say the process I go through is similar to that of Dr. Frankenstein & his monster, in the fact that his monster gets extremely out of his control and that is ultimately how my art ends up. My art shows truth of self, giving way to feelings of complete freedom and utter vulnerability in myself, during creation, and in viewers, as they experience it.”
An important part of Art in Action’s mandate is to support the next generation of Burlington’s artists with this annual scholarship programme. The award ranges from $1000.00 to $1500.00 depending on the financial support the artists receive each year from those who attend the tour.
