The Richmond Art Gallery presents a monthly program for artists to connect, network and learn from each other. In February, join us to hear about a new exhibition on the theme of “migration” for the No.3 Road Art Columns and what the mentor and mentee experiences were like for artists Renée Van Halm, Russna Kaur, and Patrick Wong. The artists will discuss their process and the work they produced as part of a pilot public art project to provide support and mentoring opportunities for artists entering the field of public art practice. Free admission, registration required due to limited spaces.
