AKA is pleased to welcome Bruce Montcombroux as our Gallery/Outreach Coordinator.
Born in Oxford, England, Bruce Montcombroux immigrated to Canada at an early age with his parents.
Frequent moves were the mainstay of his childhood and he has lived in countless places across Canada,
and in the Arctic. Montcombroux holds an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and a BFA from
the University of Manitoba. Montcombroux taught at the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2012,
and currently teaches Sculpture and Extended Media as a part-time sessional instructor at the
University of Saskatchewan. As a practicing artist he exhibits his work nationally, and internationally to
a lesser extent. His work has appeared in journals such as Grain Magazine in 2012, and in multiple
press reviews. Montcombroux was a mentoring artist for the RBC Artist by Artists Program at the
Mendel Art Gallery, in 2013. He has attended residencies at the Banff Center, the Vermont Studio
Center, and NES Artist Residency in Skagastönd, Iceland. Montcombroux has also been the recipient of
numerous grants, which include the Saskatchewan Artist Board, and notably a Pollock-Krasner
Foundation grant in 2012.
