Banff Thematic Residency – Better late than never

I was very fortunate to participate in the Banff Centre for the Arts thematic residency Another World in the Studio facilitated by artist Sarah Anne Johnson in September 22 – November 1, 2013. It’s been about 6 months since the residency and I am just getting around to posting some snaps of my time there. For images of the work I made while I was there please visit melaniecolosimo.com
