The Riverside Artists Co-Op is a group of local artists and artisans who’ve joined forces to create a cooperative event which would give them a platform to exhibit their work. Presently the group consists of 15 “creators” of a variety of genres and medias, including visual arts, up-cycling, candle making, graphic design, furniture refurbishing, stained glass, jewelry, photography and more.
“We wanted to organize an event that would give artists and artisans a forum to showcase their work and the opportunity to network with others and to introduce their creations to the public,” said Roxanne Delage, co-op member. “Most of us don’t have a studio or showroom, so it’s a great opportunity.”
The group’s first show will take place on Saturday, April 6, from 10am to 4pm, at the St Lawrence Power Development Centre at the Ontario Power Generation station, better known as the Power Dam, at the end of Second Street West. Visit www.riversideartistscoop.com
