Rebecca Anweiler completed her MFA in Painting at Concordia University in 2000 and has received numerous awards for her work including both Canada Council and Ontario Arts Council grants. Her background in Biology and Education have influenced her art practice, where she investigates the cultural meanings underlying representations of sexuality and nature in educational and scientific systems. Recent forays into video production have resulted in screenings at Modern Fuel’s Square Pegs 4 and Reelout Queer Film and Video Festival 13. Anweiler’s paintings are in numerous private and several public collections including the City of Toronto, the University of Lethbridge Art Collection and the Agnes Etherington Art Centre.
