The Romany Eveleigh Residency in

We are thrilled to announce the second edition of the Romany Eveleigh Residency! This year, the two-week residency will take place in Baie-Saint-Paul. Presented in collaboration with the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul, this program aims to support two visual artists in the exploration and creation of new work.

Romany Eveleigh (1934 – 2020) was a British-Canadian artist, known for deft and quiet paintings and drawings made with decisive gestures and muted palette in a post-minimalist style. Prior to her death Eveleigh bequeathed a portion of the proceeds from future sales of her work to support the arts. Concordia’s Art Volt platform is one of the first recipients of the Romany Eveleigh Gift, which has made this residency opportunity possible. 

The Musée d'art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul (MACBSP) is the only museum institution in eastern Quebec devoted entirely to contemporary art. The MACBSP's mission encompasses the acquisition, conservation and dissemination of contemporary art, in keeping with the tradition of renewal and the avant-garde that, since 1947, has favored contemporary creators open to emerging tendencies and thought.
