Our Story: The Challenge
In 2018, two of the 7 Works Collective artists applied to the Gibraltar Point Artscape Artist Residency program and were accepted to the residency. Both artists were so inspired by the experience of immersing themselves in their art practices for a concentrated time, they applied again in 2019.
Both artists were again accepted and traveled to Toronto Island in May along with three other artists from various art disciplines.
Then along came 2020 with great plans to add two additional artists to the group and again spend an awesome week on Toronto Island. BUT... the world changed in 2020 and the 7 Works Collective artists had to postpone their artist residency until 2021.
Even though the best laid plans were upended the group committed themselves to creative activities during that week in May and furthered their hunt for inspiration by meeting on Zoom to see each other and talk about what we had done that week.
