Darrell Roberts – Meet Me in the Garden: Community art making, Saturday, August 20, 2022, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Join artist Darrell Roberts and curator Camille Silverman in the Sculpture Garden at Riverside Arts Center for an impromptu community art making session. All ages welcome.
We will draw from nature while incorporating the current installation’s forms and colors inhabiting the outdoor space at Riverside Arts Center.
Bring your favorite art materials, a sketchbook or paper with a drawing board. It will be a playful interaction where participants can work directly into the installation, move works around and create their own compositions.
This event coincides with Darrell Roberts’ solo exhibition, “Endless” in the Sculpture Garden, on view through October 29, 2022.
*Note the galleries are closed for the month of August.
