a new digital series at PoMoArts

Welcome to The Artist Sessions. Each week, we'll go live on Facebook with new artists discussing their work, the impact of COVID-19 on their art practice, and much more in engaging artist talks. Art keeps us grounded, connected, and inspired, and we hope to share it with you.

June 25 | Deborah Bakos | Melanie Ellery | Tannis Hopkins

7:15pm | Facebook Live

With visions of the art world reopening artists are starting to look to the future. 

Deborah Bakos, Melanie Ellery and Tannis Hopkins are established artists based in Vancouver, as well as members of the collective 13 Feet off the Ground. This group of 12 female artists first came together to participate in a residency program, 'Graniti Murales', in Sicily. Join us as we catch up with new projects for the collective and for the artists’ personal art practices. We’ll also look back at their 2018 PoMoArts exhibition “From Where We Stand”.
