Angus F. Macgillivray, The Stations of The Cross, XI, Jesus is nailed to The Cross, detail
The Art Department at StFX distributes bursaries each year in honour of the late Angus F. Macgillivray, a former member of the department.
Angus F. Macgillivray was a sculptor in the medium of wood. Many of his artworks were designed for the StFX community. He is most well-known for his “Stations of The Cross” which hang in the university chapel. The series is a metaphorical interpretation of the Passion, and in their abstraction they present a quiet spirituality.
The Angus F. Macgillivray Bursary allows for multiple monetary awards to be presented to Art Studio and Art History students. A three-member jury determines the Art Studio bursaries after reviewing submitted portfolios. The Art History award is presented to the senior student with the highest academic achievement while studying towards a Minor or Subsidiary in Art History.
Art Studio portfolios are submitted in mid-March each year, with selected students notified shortly thereafter. The Art History award is determined at the end of the academic year.
Previous recipients of a bursary may not apply again.
2021 Application will be available in January with deadline in March
