Scott Price (Whitehorse)
I am a sculptor from Whitehorse YT and am grateful to be in Dawson to experience living and working here.
I work with seemingly unwanted stuff.
The discarded, thrown out, often broken bits.
It is with these found elements that I build sculptural form with an intuitive bent.
Kim Edgar (Dawson City)
Kimberly Edgar is an award-winning artist living on Tr’ondek Hwech’in land in so-called Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. Kim’s work reflects on experiences of both the medical system and the ennui that comes with being sick with no end, often comparing human bodies with the land-as-body. Kim is the recipient of grants from Cue (2018), Canada Council (2019), On Yukon Time (2020), Culture Quest (2020), and the Yukon Advanced Artist Award (2020). Kim has also created award-nominated and award-winning comic books, and has recently started a small press, Hecate Press, which released its first publication this past May. With pieces in the Yukon Permanent Art Collection and the Ottawa Direct Purchase Program, Kim is currently working on a debut graphic novel and a solo show at Odd Gallery in the fall of 2021.
For this residency, Kim is going to work on 2-3 large scale watercolour drawings in preparation for their solo show at Odd Gallery, which opens in September.
