Jessica Winton picked for this town is small and Art in the Open

Waterline sketch by Jessica WintonThis town is small and Art in the Open has announced the 2018 Artist in Residence Mentor Jessica Winton and open their call for local applicants to become her apprentice leading up to Art in the Open’s main event August 25, 4 pm to midnight. 

The 5-day residency brings together established and emerging contemporary artists to share and develop their technical skills, knowledge and professional practice. The residency results in an exhibited art piece that is presented at the Art in the Open Festival.

An advocate for art in the public realm, Jessica Winton creates performative/ sculptural installations to provoke civic engagement on socio-political issues. Her experience as a prop builder in the film and television industry has influenced her atypical approach to material usage. Having recently attained an MFA from NSCAD University, she continues to investigate the role of the citizen artist in the public 

Jessica’s project for Art in the Open’s main event, Waterline, will include a community built, multi-person parade float that will be transported and performed around the festival sites. 

The parade float will be built throughout a multi-day workshop, free and open to the public. More details will be announced in early August.

In community spirit Jessica will invite members of the general public to bring their own costumes and join in on the fun. “We will encourage participants unable to attend the workshop to show up with other props for the AIO event. Responses could include, but are not limited to: goggles, diving mask, water wings, pool toys, fishing gear, PFD’s or walking in flippers,” states the artist.
