RESIDENCY

2019

Anita Thomas is fulfilling a three-month artist residency at The Cotton Factory in downtown Hamilton from March to May 2019. Thanks go out to the Cotton Factory and Hamilton Arts Council for this amazing opportunity. Thomas' plan is to continue with her east coast acrylic painting series and she will also use a new upcycling technique she'll apply to her encaustic paintings in this series. At the end of the residency, Thomas will hold an artist talk and exhibition along with the other artist she is sharing the studio space with. Anita will also display her photography from that incredible motorcycle trip she made in 2016, the source of her inspiration for this project.
