Artist Salon:Group Feedback Session
Thursday, September 6, 7:00 - 9:00pm
The Richmond Art Gallery’s Artist Salon is a free monthly program for artists to connect, network and learn from each other. This month, group members will share their own artistic practice in small groups for feedback, inspiration and advice. Most artists tend to work in isolation, so this session is an opportunity to meet other artists in the community and receive input on how you can move forward in your artistic pursuits. Participants may ask for feedback on artworks or on their marketing/art business materials. Note – each participant is responsible for using their own device (i.e. smartphone or tablet) if they want to share images/websites with the group. RAG staff will be on hand for guidance and assistance.
Weaving Our Way: What if our community stories were actually woven together?
Saturday, September 22, 2:00 - 4:00pm
A community weaving exhibition at Richmond City Hall Galleria, Weaving Our Way brings together a diverse and creative community of weavers in intercultural and intergenerational exchange, presented by the Vancouver Arts Colloquium Society and Richmond Art Gallery. Join us at Richmond Art Gallery to hear about the ongoing Galleria exhibition on the theme of "interculturalism” for the Weaving Our Way (WOW) project, and what the indigenous artist-mentor and non-indigenous project leader experiences were like for artist Debra Sparrow and Keiko Honda, Ph.D., Executive Director of Vancouver Arts Colloquium Society. They will discuss their grassroots processes and the work they produced as part of a year-long public art project, to provide some insights to support artistic creations through weaving and cross-cultural empathy. The artist will also demonstrate Musqueam weaving and invite anyone to try their hand at weaving. Presented by the Vancouver Arts Colloquium Society.
