A public studio visit into Rodell Warner's art residency project

Tomorrow, April 28, 2014
 7  - 9 PM 


NLS is pleased to invite you to the first public open studio for Rodell Warner's art residency Canopy Guild-- a collaborative project with Afifa Aza, Ayana Riviére, Ai Yoshida, Leasho Johnson and Storm Saulter.

Canopy Guild is  a community photography, fashion and object design project. From images captured in nature Warner has produced patterns and printed fabrics. Five artists from Kingston were asked to help create wearable garments and art objects from these fabrics and patterns, which will be shared publicly in a multimedia exhibition in May.  Tomorrow's studio visit is an opportunity to get a peak into the creative process of Warner and his collaborators.

Takes place tomorrow, April 28 at 190 Mountain View Avenue, Kingston 6. 7 PM - 9 PM. This event is free and open to the public.
