McArthurGlen Designer Outlet will be hosting a live artist event in support of local artists this summer.
The outlet is partnering with the Chali-Rosso Art Gallery to feature Vancouver artist Tiarra Edmundson as part of their “Artist in Residence” program that aims to promote artists and their work.
Edmundson will be converting a blank canvas into a contemporary art piece in the Chali-Rosso gallery, next to the Watch Station, this Friday and Saturday.
Shoppers can experience her “process and journey from conception to completion” of the art piece at the gallery.
“For an artist, there is an initial vision which launches the journey that transforms inspiration to art,” says the outlet’s website.
Edmundson is an abstract artist who specializes in embedding algorithmic computations in her acrylic and oil paintings.
She has been part of several shows including “The Fairmont’s Featured Artist,” Abacus and Numbers,” “We Are Yaletown” and “Symmetry Lighting Art Show.”
The live event will take place at the Chali-Rosso gallery in the outlet on July 10 and 11 from 2 to 5 p.m.
