What Happens Next?

This skeptical but uplifting publication has some exceptional content in store for you. In Wendy McGrath’s My Process interview you’ll get some insight into the studio practice of SNAP’s Emerging Artist in Residence: Max Keene. Emerging artist and writer Jessa Gillespie gives us hope that technology may not be our final undoing; rather it could be a path forward, a way to find and support and uplift each other. Local favourite and regular SNAPline contributor Blair Brennan opens up a query on stories, the ones we tell each other, the ones we tell ourselves, the ones we are told. Brennan is asking us to think about the role of the artist in the formation of our stories. And of course, there is our fantastic featured artist Gabriela Jolowicz and the winning piece of Flash Fiction by Dominik Royko inspired by her print.
