    The June Artist Salon session features an in-person session with artist and THRIVE Artist Community founder, Jamie Smith.

    Jamie shares about her recent body of work and art show “Mother Time”, as well as the power of writing about your work during the art making process and when showing the work to the public. She will leave you with techniques to infuse deeper meaning in your work and ways to express this to the outside world, especially when your art is dealing with difficult topics.

    This edition of the Artist Salon was an in-person event recorded at the Richmond Art Gallery.

    About the Presenter:

    Jamie Smith holds degrees in Visual Arts and in Arts Education. She settled in Vancouver in 2014 and created an annual community art walk called ROVE and in 2015 she founded THRIVE, an online community of female identifying and non binary artists. Jamie creates monochromatic drawings, wooden wall-hanging sculptures, and installation work incorporating personal and culturally-resonant symbols in an attempt to reckon with the fragility of life, new beginnings, the passage of time and the depths of loss. Jamie is deeply inspired by Aubrey Beardsley, the Art Nouveau Movement, family crests, Toile pattern design, tarot decks, and Delft pottery.


    The Artist Salon is an opportunity for emerging and established visual artists to learn from arts professionals and discuss opportunities in the arts community. Each month presents a different guest presenter for inspirational talks and professional development advice for visual artists.

    Past live sessions from 2020 onwards are recorded and may be viewed online at the RAG@Home Artist Salon videos.

    Program is supported by the City of Richmond Arts and Culture grant.
