The Owens is excited to welcome Hannah Bridger to the team as the Colville House Curatorial Intern.
Hannah will work closely with Emily Falvey, Director/Curator, and the rest of the Owens’ team, to assist with the administration and delivery of programming linked to Colville House. A small house museum located in the historic home of one of Canada’s best-known visual artists, Colville House is a place to explore the life and work of renowned magic realist painter Alex Colville.
Hannah looks forward to this internship as an opportunity to do new research and find creative ways to expand Colville House’s public programming while also building her curatorial CV. Originally from Charlottetown, PEI, Hannah graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mount Allison University in 2020 with a focus in sculpture. During the internship, Hannah will develop her curatorial writing skills, assist with publication coordination, and work with the Colville House Fellow to develop exhibitions and other programing.
Hannah enjoys the kind of “creative problem-solving involved in rethinking how these galleries usually function, so that people can still have a meaningful engagement with the work whether they’re viewing it in person or online.”
The Colville House Curatorial Internship is funded through the Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations and the generous philanthropic support of Mount Allison University alumni Heather and Ian Bourne.
