Come along to a special Family Sunday in partnership with the YMCA to welcome newcomers to Canada! Join artist Margarita Fainshtein, who will introduce you to printmaking, painting, and 3D activities. This Family Sunday will be a chance to get creative, explore the Gallery, and make new friends in the community. All welcome!

About the Artist:

Born in Ukraine, Margarita Fainshtein earned a BFA from University of Haifa, Israel and MFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Exhibitions include: Ukranian Institute of Modern Art, Chicago (forthcoming); Chicago Art Department; Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax; and venues in North America and Europe. Fainshtein’s work reflects the complexity of multi-cultural citizenship and immigrant status as it intersects with personal, political, and cultural relations. What relation do political movements have with individual histories? Is there a global citizen? From Ukraine, I repatriated to Israel, and immigrated to Canada. I’m Nova Scotian, however, I have other cultural identities, which intersect and define who I am. Fainshtein lives and works in Halifax.
