We are thrilled to announce the renewal and expansion of the Stonecroft Foundation Artist Residency program at Agnes 2022–2025!
First launched in 2017 with a visionary gift from the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, the residency has hosted leading Canadian contemporary artists Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens, Tau Lewis, Walter Scott, Jol Thoms and Rajni Perera to Agnes for periods of extended research, artistic exchange and creation. The residencies deepen access with artists for students, and the Queen’s and Kingston communities, sparking enduring relationships and networks.
“Stonecroft Foundation has laid the groundwork for Agnes Reimagined where we return Etherington House back into a home, creating a live-in artist residency upstairs and a community facing hub downstairs, says Emelie Chhangur, Agnes Director and Curator, “we couldn’t do this without your shared commitment to incubating artist’s practices.”
