    The Burrard Arts Foundation welcomes Sean Mills ('10) as their new artist in residence. Sean's residency will culminate in a solo exhibition of his work at the Burrard Arts Foundation in May 2015.

    Sean will work on a new body of work that explores his interest in light, transparency and especially pushing the boundaries of paint. Sean is interested in the ability of paint to both occupy and contain space, its interaction with light, and the effects of time, labour, and process.

    For more information, please visit Burrard Arts Residency.

    “It’s fantastic to see this phenomenal growth, because it represents a belief and investment in the next generation of artists and designers,” says Claire Schagerl ('04), who runs the Emily Carr University teen programs. “Our summer students show that creatives of all ages can be invested in their practice.”
