Nonesuch artist in residence Mark Andrews works exclusively on paper, combining natural minerals with pigments, powdered graphite, oils and beeswax which are pressed, incised, burnished and polished. His work is concerned with creating a gestural lexicon and archiving it through repetitive mark-making to sediment native Canadian oral culture landscape place-names and elder-stories.
In 2017 Mark was awarded the Nonesuch Art of Paper Griffintown Award for his painting Raven Brings Universal Light.
RAVEN BRINGS UNIVERSAL LIGHT

He won the “New Faces: Artists’ Choice” competition in Toronto for his large scale black (graphite) drawings. Selected group and solo exhibitions include the A-Space, York University, Glendon College, and Harbourfront Galleries in Toronto, and Belgo Arts, the Gallery at Victoria Hall and Nonesuch Art of Paper Awards group shows in Montreal and Parrsboro.

MEET THE ARTIST
Bill Liebeskind has been working for the past three years on a series of paintings titled TODAY. The paintings use newspaper photography as a departure point. To date, Liebeskind has made 2,000 paintings, working in New York and at artist’s residencies in Nebraska, Missouri and here in Parrsboro. There is so much beauty in the world. A sunset, a flower garden, the morning tide. Liebeskind looks for the beauty in people as they move, interact, and often struggle to find a place in the world.
