Kathleen Gill, , Grantee Link >
Kathleen Gill is a painter and poet based in Ontario, Canada. She received a grant to create a series of paintings called “Reserved and Deserved” to reflect the complexities at work in the Canadian far north in isolated and First Nation regions, and to benefit a First-Nation adjacent animal welfare group. She writes:
I aim for the series to bring forward the on-going issues regarding feral and semi-feral dogs throughout northern communities, and the resources and education needed to further develop healthy and safe environments between humans and dogs. I would like my artwork to have a positive impact on viewers and create an emotional response through subdued color and atmospheric space.
