Artist Salon with Ho Tam
Thursday, June 7, 7:00 - 9:00pm
Guest artist presenter is Ho Tam, who will share his publishing practice. Self-publishing is becoming an increasingly popular “do-it-yourself” method for artists to have their work shared and shown to audiences that they may not normally reach. As an artist who publishes his own artist books, magazines, blogs and various publication projects, Tam will discuss his role as ‘artist as publisher’, which includes everything from editorial, design, production and distribution.
Artist Salon with Keely O’Brien
Thursday, July 5, 7:00 - 9:00pm
The July Artist Salon session features guest presenter Keely O’Brien, the current artist in residence at Richmond’s Branscombe House. Keely will share her experiences as an artist in residence, including details on the application process, the community engagement projects she led, and how this work aligns with her studio art practice. The session will start with her artist talk, followed by an open question and discussion session for all the artists in the group to learn more about community-engaged art practices and artist residencies.
The Artist Salon is an opportunity for emerging and established artists to meet other artists, share or present current work with peers and discuss upcoming opportunities in the arts community.
