To help slow the rate of COVID-19 in Hamilton and protect vulnerable populations including seniors and people with compromised immune systems, the Art Gallery of Hamilton is temporarily closed until further notice. As such, the exhibition dates for In Residence: Sylvia Nickerson are currently tentative. Please check back before planning your visit.
Local comics artist, writer, and illustrator Sylvia Nickerson will use her year-long residency within the David Braley and Nancy Gordon Sculpture Atrium as an opportunity to develop content for a new fantasy adult-oriented literary graphic novel exploring the future of artificial intelligence. In addition to leading workshops that examine the major themes of the book, the artist will invite Gallery visitors to alter or add to narrative and illustrative elements, allowing the storymaking process to become a collaborative one. These activities will serve as inspiration for Nickerson’s next graphic novel.
