The Owens Art Gallery is pleased to launch No Ducks: Emerging Art Critics at the Owens Art Gallery, a new online venue for art criticism and essays written by Mount Allison University students. Featuring the writings of Shivanya AlbasLaika Dadounand Noah Lubendothe current issue covers a wide range of topics, including contemporary art and film, decolonization, Black and Jewish identity, cultural appropriation, Indigenous art, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Conceived in the early days of the pandemic, this exciting new publishing venture emerges from the J.E.A. Crake Art Critics-at-Large Program, a student mentorship project designed to give aspiring student writers the opportunity to work with an experienced art critic under circumstances similar to those of professional, independent art critics. Throughout the 2020-2021 academic year, a small group of students developed content for No Ducks under the supervision of Emily Falvey, Director/Curator of the Owens Art Gallery. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the J.E.A. Crake Foundation and Mount Allison University for making the J.E.A. Crake Art Critics-at-LargeProgram possible. Funding for this project came from the J.E.A. Crake ArtsWork Internships program, which is intended to provide Mount Allison University students with opportunities for experiential learning and to enable them to explore career options in the Arts.
