Emily Kewageshig is the 2020 recipient of the Fallis Scholarship for the Arts. Durham Art Gallery is proud to support artists in the early stages of  their careers.


Emily responded to the news:  


I am very honoured to be the recipient of this year’s Fallis scholarship, as I have been working extremely hard in both my studies and my own personal art practice. This scholarship is a message of encouragement, acknowledging that the work that I am doing is being recognized. I am heading into my final year of studies at OCAD University in the Indigenous Visual Culture program, hoping to graduate in 2021. I am incredibly grateful for this support as it will allow me to purchase higher quality art materials, and will give me an overall sense of financial stability and security while in school this year. I would like to say chi-miigwetch (thank you) to the Durham Art Gallery for providing me with this opportunity.
