Artist Residency in Canada

$980 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 16 people in 42 months


My name is Sharon Norwood  and I am an interdisciplinary artists based in Florida. I received my BFA from the University of South Florida  and will be pursuing my MFA at Florida State University  this Fall, but before that I hope to participate in a two week residency and need your help.

I have been accepted into the Luminous Bodies facilitated residency at Artscape  in Canada. Luminous Bodies  residency at Artscape Gibraltar Point is located on an island  just a short ferry ride away from downtown Toronto.

In Luminous Bodies, 15 resident artists from around the world, are invited to create artworks that shed new light on the human body, it's objective,  to challenge “normativity” and Otherness and to reinvent and re-present the body in the most inclusive and diverse ways.

My current body of work  is about dentity and perceived ideals of beauty. My work takes a look at curly hair and consists of ink drawings of my own hair which is then transferred onto the ceramic surface. I would like to use this residency to  produce a series of large scale ink drawings.

This is a great opportunity for me to not only make some new work, but also to meet and work with other artist who are exploring similar subject matter in their practice. In exchange for your help, I am providing some limited edition rewards from my series "Split Ends". 


My expenses for this residency includes: 

travel $500
accommodation $1000
food $300
supplies $100
transportation (taxi, ferry, transit, bicycle rental) $250
miscellaneous $250
Total $2400


 Here are some pictures of some of the rewards listed in my campaign.

Even if you can’t help financially, you can still help by passing the campaign on to others that might.

Thank You!!!

Less than a week remaining until the start of my two week residency in Toronto. I am humbled by the generosity of my friends. I want to say thank you. I am blessed to have so many folks who believe in me and who are so supportive of my efforts. It's not easy being an artist there is so much self doubt, anxieties. Thank you for being team Sharon. Your support warms my heart and inspires me to continue to pursue my artistic voice.
