Artmakers at River Run
Back again by popular demand at Guelph’s River Run Centre is the Noon Hour Lecture Series. For the fall, the series is titled Artmakers in our Community, and it will run for five consecutive Mondays in November. Each “artmaker” will describe how the cultural environment shapes his/her work.

November 1
Ted Teshima, Architect. Teshima is with the firm Moriyama and Teshima, and was the architect for the River Run Centre. He will show how his architectural designs relate to the cultural environment.
- November 8 – Heather Daymond, Potter. Interested in clay since the early 1970s, Daymond will offer a visual survey of contemporary functional clay work, including her own, and look at how it fits in today’s society.
November 15
Lois Etherington Betteridge, Silversmith. Having worked as a studio artist since 1952, Betteridge is mainly concerned with functional objects which celebrate the many rituals of our lives.

November 22
Sally Melville, Fibre Artist. Working primarily in the medium of knitting, Melville has taught and written about knitting skills. She will use knitting to illustrate her presentation on the subject of creativity.

November 29
Werner Zimmermann, Children’s Book Illustrator and Author. Enjoying a multitude of art techniques, Zimmerman brings the creative process alive through his dynamic and enthusiastic presentation. He will talk about the development of his work from Arctic pieces to his latest children’s book.

Lectures start at 12 noon, and last about an hour. Audience members can bring their own lunches. Beverages will be available.
