Anna Gaby-Trotz, printmaker and photographer, often travels to the most remote places in Canada to explore our relationship to the land. In 2012, Anna received funding to travel through The Northwest Passage, furthering her work in the Canadian Arctic. Her current work explores her relationship to a landscape that is melting and changing before our eyes. Whether working from the side of a river-bank, or in a college or university, Anna believes in the transformative power of art.
After completing her MFA in Printmaking from The University of Alberta, Anna worked in Edmonton at Boyle Street Community Services. Here she built an inner-city arts program for some of the most underprivileged people in Canada. More recently Anna worked as a photographer on a project called Be Our Ally where she works with rural youth examining issues of homophobia. Anna participated as an artist on board the C3 Expedition, which travelled through waters in British Columbia examining climate change. Anna currently works as the Technical Director for Open Studio in Toronto.
