The November session features textile artists Deirdre Pinnock and Nadine Flagel. Together they recently completed “Stepping Stones,” a permanent textile “Legacy Artwork” installed in the Richmond City Centre Community Centre.
For both Deirdre and Nadine this was their first public art commission and their first collaboration, and it required a lot of learning from the exhilarating moment of being awarded the project. Deirdre and Nadine will speak to the many challenges and rewards of working collaboratively and to the differences between independent and commissioned artwork. They will break down or demystify the process of proposing and completing a public artwork. They especially welcome “outsider” artists, self-taught artists, recent graduates of art programs, and anyone interested in seeing a public artwork turned inside out.
