The Fallis Scholarship for the Arts

Durham Art Gallery established the Fallis Scholarship of the Arts out of a desire to cultivate art and artists throughout so-called Grey-Bruce.

Emily Kewageshig is the 2020 recipient of the Fallis Scholarship for the Arts. Emily is entering her last year at OCAD University. Durham Art Gallery is proud to support artists at this stage of their career.


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.“

We are a non-profit, exhibition-driven space for contemporary art and visual culture in so-called West Grey, Ontario.


Durham Art Gallery rests on the traditional land of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, which is represented by the communities of Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. We thank them. We also thank of the Métis Nation of Ontario, whose history and people are well represented in what are now Bruce and Grey Counties. 


From our earliest incarnation in the local Carnegie library to our current purpose-built home, the Gallery’s evolution is marked by an engaged community and a diversifying landscape.
