The Lunenburg School of Arts (LSA) has a new artist in residence through to May 15.

It's artist and designer, Inbal Newman, who has a gamut of professional experience from print maker to tall ship sailor.

Newman is a Wisconsin-born designer and printer based in Toronto. According to her website, she received a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Illustration from Parsons School of Design in 2013, and a Master's of Design from the Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design program at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2020.

In a recent media release introducing the artist, the LSA suggested her creative process involves "maintaining artistic secrecy or 'soft espionage,' and methods of repetition - from printmaking and performance rehearsal, to typewriting, interview, and crochet.

"The outcomes of this work reflect a fascination with semi-permanent records of impermanent places and situations, such as hand-poked tattoos, personally significant maps, and found material textile explorations including garments, doilies, and blankets."

The school's Artist-in-Residence program aims to provide a space for emerging artists, including recent graduates, to enable them to develop and enhance their practice in their chosen medium.
