Riversdale is full of interesting artists—emerging and established, mainstream and fringe—which brings a unique character to the neighbourhood and creates endless possibilities for residents and visitors to get creative. Here are some opportunities on your doorstep:
1) VISIT VOID
Go to Void Gallery. From August 6th to 28th Void is featuring an exhibition entitled Death and Rebirth by Joanne Bolen and Brianne Chisholm. Take in the closing reception on Saturday, August 27th from 7 to 9pm.
2) GET CREATIVE
If you're not content just to take in the art and want to get your hands dirty, visit Void's workspace for artists and makers: Creative Commons YXE. They host regular workshops and events, and the next is a day long workshop on RESIST-BASED RELIEF PRINTING on Aug 21, 2016.
3) KICK UP YOUR FEET THIS SATURDAY
Tucked away in the Mosaic condos off 20th Street is an international fashion designer, whose creativity and spirit is irrepressible. Eva Vas of Opinion Atelier has a studio in her home, and her passion for bringing people together has lead her into event planning. Check out this gala this Saturday at the Farmer's Market--a perfect way to celebrate a sultry summer evening. Info and tickets here!
