Arts Etobicoke invites all artists from the community to join a Celebration of Artists on Wednesday, May 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm via Virtual Curtain. We miss connecting with you, celebrating your work, and sharing space together. Through this interactive online space, artists will have the opportunity to connect with peers from across the city, view virtual art, and celebrate each other! The Virtual Curtain platform allows you to create an avatar to navigate through the space; providing a nice break from all those video meetings.
The evening features a variety of interactive elements where you can experience Arts Etobicoke’s Annual Spring Juried Art Show “Through the Window…” live and recorded musical performances, board games, and more. Professional artists/curators, Philip Ocampo, Marjan Verstappen, and Claudia Arana will be present to facilitate small group conversations about your artwork for those interested in participating. If you want to participate in these conversations, we encourage you to bring a piece of art to share with the group. You can seek feedback from the artists, ask questions about applying to juried art shows, or just enjoy the conversation.
We really miss celebrating with our artist community and while we can’t do that in person just yet, we want you to join us for this event to celebrate you and your art! Check out the video below and try out the Virtual Curtain self-guided demo to familiarize yourself with the virtual space.
