Event type: All Ages
Join Canadian Artist, Courtney Turner, as she discusses her artistic journey thus far as an emerging artist. She will give the audience a glimpse into what her creative process looks like, and will share how she uses her art practice as means of healing and coping while living with chronic illness.
Courtney Turner is an emerging contemporary artist, currently residing in Canning, Nova Scotia.
Courtney’s unique combination of abstract rug hooking and representational self-portraiture painting is a direct representation of the connections between her current self and her child self, her healing journey of living with chronic illness and memories of significant familial textiles that have brought her comfort throughout her life. Courtney graduated from NSCAD University in 2020, majoring in Textiles & Fashion.
You can learn more about Courtney and see her work at www.courtneyturnerart.ca and on Instagram @courtneyturnerart.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
The Zoom link for this presentation will be emailed to you the day before the talk (or after you purchase your ticket, if you purchase on the day of the event). If you don't receive it, you can contact the organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets will be on sale until 10 am the day of the event. After that time you will no longer be able to purchase tickets.
Please note that the time of the talk is 1:00 pm EASTERN (EST).
* Will this talk be recorded for viewing later?
Unfortunately, no. Due to the logistics involved, we decided some time ago to keep these events live. Hopefully if you can't make it to this talk, you'll be able to make it to a future talk.
* It's the day of the talk and I'm having trouble finding or using the link for the talk. How can I find help?
It is very advisable to LOG INTO THE EVENT A FEW MINUTES EARLY to be sure that you have no trouble with the link, and if you are having trouble the organizer can help you out. You can email or message the event organizer up until one hour before the talk on the day of the talk for help. ONCE THE EVENT STARTS, however, messages and emails are not able to be monitored.
* I'm finding it distracting during the talk seeing all of the other participants on my screen. What can I do?
During the event the organizer will put the screen setting on "spotlight view" so that the presenter is the focus on your screen. Depending on your device, you may still see audience members on your screen and changing your setting from "gallery view" to "speaker view" should help with that.
* What Time Zone is the time of the talk in?
The time indicated on all 'In the Studio' talks is the EASTERN (EST) time zone. If you live in a different time zone, be sure to check what time you should tune in to ensure you don't miss the talk.
*I can no longer make it to the talk. Or, I missed the talk. Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately no- the price of the ticket is so low that it is not cost-effective to refund those amounts. If you are unable to make it to the talk and you already have a ticket, or you forget to attend, please do contact me at email@example.com. I always offer a ticket to the next talk to make up for it. All of the artist speakers receive a portion of the ticket proceeds so we very much appreciate your contribution to supporting artists!
Cutoff is Wednesday, May 26, 2021 10:59 am EST unless it sells out earlier.
