Artist Salon: Building Community Connections

  • Artist Salon
  • March 29, 2023

    Join us in person at the gallery for a conversation and social with Community Arts Council of Richmond (CACR) and Richmond Arts Coalition (RAC).  Hear more about these arts organizations and what are some upcoming opportunities in the local arts scene. This is a great opportunity to meet and share with other Lower Mainland visual artists at our first Artist Salon social of the year!

    Guest presenters Jimmy Ho, President of CACR, and Andrew Wade, President of RAC, will each share information about their upcoming events and ways for artists to get involved. Richmond Art Gallery staff will also be on hand to share more ideas on how artists can get involved and connected to various opportunities throughout Richmond and beyond.

    After the guest presentations, there will be an informal discussion and social for participants to ask questions, share other arts opportunities, and discuss their own artistic plans for the year ahead.

    Light refreshments will be available.

    Free admission.  Registration required due to limited spaces.
