Artist Kaya Fraser Selected for Emerging Artist Residency 2021

Mount Stuart Trust is delighted to announce that we have selected Kaya Fraser as the Emerging Artist for 2021.

Kaya is a multi-disciplinary artist who was born and lives in Perth. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone in 2020 with BA Hons First Class in Art & Philosophy.

She said, “I am extremely grateful to begin the year with the news of being the 2021 emerging artist resident in socially engaged practice with Mount Stuart. I begin this residency with a strong nostalgic feeling of connection to Rothesay even though I only know it through family anecdotes of holidays there. I hope this residency extends these memories into my own stories of the people and stories I come to meet.”

Mount Stuart Trust’s Visual Arts Programme has an international reputation with nineteen years experience of working with established artists. In 2018, the programme was expanded to include artists at an earlier career stage. Following the success of the inaugural residencies we are excited to run the residency again in 2021.

Our Emerging Artist Residency is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
