Exhibitions in the Prospect series introduce artists in the early phase of their careers. Megan Kyak-Monteith is a recent graduate of NSCAD from Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet), NU who lives and works in Halifax. In her painting, Kyak-Monteith often combines images from her memory with stories shared with her by others. This new animation brings her painting to life, merging the labour of community endeavor (here, the whale hunt) with the work of turning still images into moving ones.

Opening Reception

February 1 at 2:00pm

Please join the artist for a relaxed reception with refreshments.
