A brand-new arts residency pro-gram saw three Fanshawe fine artgrads traveling to Barbados for four weeks in January.Joscelyn Gardner, professor of fine art at Fanshawe, is one of thefounders of Art Connections, aninternational non-profit residencyprogram. Gardner is a Barbadianand former professor at theBarbados Community College, andthis program was a way to intro-duce young Barbadian artists toother emerging artists from aroundthe world, she explained.“Because I (now) teach inCanada, we thought we wouldwork with Canadian artists to startwith. Fanshawe’s fine art programis one of the well-recognized onesin Canada,” she said. “Because Ihave a link here, because I’mteaching here, we started here.”She worked with two colleaguesto select top graduates from the lastfive years of the fine art program.They ultimately chose three gradsto send to Barbados: JoshPeressotti, a 2008 graduate; JessicaMassard, a 2007 graduate; andDaniel Glassford, also a 2007 grad.“It was my first time out of North America, so it was interest-ing (to) … go to a whole differentcountry,” said Glassman. The cul-ture shock hit him as soon as hestepped out of the airplane. “Theairport was totally different. Youland on the strip and you walk outof the plane. The whole airport wasopen and there were people every-where. It was just unusual.”The difference in culture extend-ed far beyond the airport. “I think Ilearned a lot culturally about howart operates in other parts of theworld,” he said. “Just how hard itis to get arts supplies in Barbadosversus how it is in Canada, howthey run their gallery systems – everything is completely different.Just understanding how all of thatoperates was a real eye-opener.”Glassman said he brought manyof his art supplies with him after doing some research about thematerials that would be availableto him in Barbados. “(I found that)it was much cheaper for me tobring it from Canada than pick itup there. They get charged duty oneverything, so it’s like twice the(price) and they have very littlesupplies.”“You can understand why theyoperate differently than we do, intheir processes and stuff, becauseof supplies and what they haveavailable to them,” he said.Besides Barbados’ residents andunique processes, the island’senvironment also had an impact onGlassman’s work in January. “Mycurrent work takes its inspirationfrom how geological things form,like rocks, and how they wear away and erode. Barbados is anentire island made of coral, so Ireally tried to focus on that andpick up on the natural coral pat-terns.”The three Fanshawe gradsresided with three youngBarbadian artists – Alicia Alleyne,Tonya Wiles and Nicholas Grimes– in an old plantation home on theisland from January 3 to 31.“We were all working in thesame space, so we were interactingand talking with each other, andwatching each other work,” saidGlassman. “We’d pick up howthey operated, what their processesare, how they go about startingtheir work. It was very interesting– not necessarily technically – butmore conceptually of how theyapproach things.”At the end of the four weeks, theartists gave a presentation and heldan art show on the island.According to Gardner, every piececreated by the Fanshawe grads wassold.“I think it was a good experiencefor them, and for the people inBarbados, because it exposed themon both sides to a different cultureand way of working,” she said.“They did a lot while they werethere. They visited with quite a fewdifferent established artists on theisland, and people visited themwhen they were working on their work. They also had a critic fromFinland write about them.”Glassman echoed this statement,adding that he “definitely” foundthis to be a valuable experience. “Imade lots of connections withartists there. It helped with net-working and future endeavours.”Gardner said she is looking intocontinuing this program in differ-ent countries around the world, andadded that she is hoping to bringthe Barbadian artists to Canada.“This was an experimental proj-ect that just got off the ground.We’re determining whether to goahead with these residencies or not. (The Fanshawe grads) werethe guinea pigs,” she laughed.To read the blog written by thegrads during their residency inBarbados, visit artconnections-bar-bados.blogspot.com.
