Join international artist Gaetanne Lavoie, and learn how artist residencies work, which ones would be suited to you and your work, and how to apply and cover the cost. Examine how much weight needs to be placed on networking, openings, and getting involved in your local, national and international artistic community. Discuss who to meet, how and why, and ultimately how to find your tribe. Finally, you’ll explore how to develop your art career through working for others, ie: teaching, assistant painting, illustration, contract jobs and public art.

Meet the Artist:

Hello, I’m Gaetanne Lavoie! I received my BFA from York University in Toronto, an MFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and a second MFA (that I consider my personal PhD) from the New York Academy of Art in NYC. I recently moved to Kingston to be close to family and develop my career in Canada. I have exhibited nationally and internationally, curated several group exhibitions affiliated with such organizations as the African Wildlife Foundation. I have several publications and have worked on murals for cathedrals across the United States, as well as, painted the ceiling for the New York Public Library and sculpted the ceiling for Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan. I moved back to Canada October 2017 and am excited to continue to develop my work and career in Kingston, ON.
