ARTISTS IN THE HOUSE (FREE)
A show and tell with the current KIAC Artists in Residence.

gail
Gail Noonan is a visual artist and filmmaker with a strong interest in music. Originally from the east coast, she made a slow westward migration with a sojourn in the middle to go to art school in Winnipeg where she lived for a number of years as a printmaker. A move to Vancouver prompted her to make a lateral transfer to film animation after a compressed two years of study at the Emily Carr Institute. She abandoned the city a number of years ago to live on Mayne Island which has allowed her to focus on making her films. “Sourdough Starter” is the latest of nine animated films produced so far. Currently she is exploring how to combine her interest in songwriting with animating unusual materials including her own aging flesh.

sam
Sam Decoste is an artist based in Halifax. In 2015 she graduated from NSCAD University with an MFA in Media Arts: Animation. Her short animated documentary Mary & Myself (prod: Annette Clarke, NFB) was nominated for a Screen Award in 2014. She is currently animating stories of artists living in Paris in the 1930s in a film called Salon.
