Meet our 2018 Artists in Residence at this very special art demo. Metal Sculptor Rich Baker and printmaker Melissa Cormier will be at the Algonquin Art Centre on Sunday, Sept. 9th, from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, demonstrating their talents and discussing their Algonquin-related art projects. Please join us and enjoy these amazing talents at work. Free Admission.



Rich Baker: Rich is an incredible metal sculptor who’s been exhibiting work at the Algonquin Art Centre for the last four years. He was invited to participate in this year’s residence in preparation for his upcoming solo exhibit  to be held at the Art Centre in 2019. Rich will spend his time here soaking up the beauty of Algonquin Park and working on his sculptures in the Art Centre studio.




Melissa Cormier: Melissa was selected out of a large pool of talented applicants for our 2018 residency program. Graduating from OCAD with a BFA in printmaking, Melissa explores the rich textures in Canada’s wilderness areas through charcoal and graphite renderings. Her project for the residency is called “Highlighted Textures: Journey to the Hidden Surfaces in Algonquin Provincial Park” and will detail the Park’s underlining beauty that normally goes unnoticed.
