Jessica Winton, President
Jessica Winton is a practicing sculptor based in Halifax, NS. She brings her 20-year involvement as an artist in the north end Halifax community to the board. Her work on previous society boards, The Paradise Sisters Cinema and Photopolis Festival, as well as experience curating the Hydrostone Gallery has given her a depth of knowledge applicable to her current role as President of Wonder’neath Art Society.
After attaining her MFA from NSCAD University, her personal practice has continued to investigate the role of the citizen artist in the public spheres we occupy. Her work follows Joseph Beuys’ theory of the importance of sculpture’s relationship to the social, and often includes participation from members of the publics, particularly neighbourhood children, and elders. Her recurrent experience as a prop builder in the Film & Television industry has influenced her atypical approach to material usage, and tendency toward performance.
