Nan Yeomans ‘Art For All’
The Kingston community is coming together to celebrate the life and legacy of Nan Yeomans.
‘Art for All’ is an exhibition and sale of Nan’s ‘affordable treasures.’ The event will be held from September 24 to September 26 at a pop-up gallery at 237 Princess St. All proceeds from the sale will be added to Nan’s endowment fund, ensuring the continued success of her artistic legacy!
Nan Yeomans was a prominent Kingston artist dedicated to supporting local and emerging artists in the visual arts. It was her wish to fund a grant for promising young artists and artisans developing their talents in the greater Kingston area.
In 2004, the Nan Yeomans Fund was established at the Community Foundation with her bequest, which now provides an annual award in her name.
Tonya Corkey, the 2020 recipient of the Nan Yeomans Grant for Artistic Development, will be honoured publicly at the event. On Friday, September 24 at 7PM she will be acknowledged and presented with a piece of artwork from Nan Yeomans’ estate.
