MARN is pleased to present the “2020/21 MARNmentors Exhibition” running November 19, 2021 – January 4, 2022 within the MARN ART + CULTURE HUB.  

The exhibition features the work of artists who participated in the 2020 – 2021 MARNmentors program, a competitive, season-long artist mentorship program offering emerging artists the opportunity to partner with local established artists to further their artistic practice while engaging in building a career as a working artist. At the end of each program cycle, MARNmentors culminates in an exhibition that highlights the professional and personal developments and collaborations between our talented mentors & mentees.
