MEET THE MAKERS
Date: September 17
Time: 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Meet the Makers is a casual, drop-in presentation series centring on the new exhibition Creative Obsessions. For one afternoon two artists will occupy the gallery to speak with visitors about the creative processes behind their works in the exhibition. To help with educating the public artists will bring works in progress, studies or sketches of future works, tools they frequently use and/or other items that will help describe how they create what they do. The goal of this series is for visitors to come away with a deeper understanding of the techniques and labour that go into each artwork in the exhibition, and learn information about these processes that they may not normally have access to from simply visiting the gallery. This is a recurring series taking place on the third Thursday of the month until November 19.
September 17 – Jim Aquilani and Ayelet Stewart
October 15 – Melissa Peter-Paul and Bette Young
November 19 – Jamie Germaine, Rilla Marshall, Jody Racicot
