RandM Collective (Oct 21+22)
RandM Collective's mission is to promote and celebrate all things illustrative through exhibitions and events in collaboration with artists from any discipline communicating through the use of illustration. It is also the studio and gallery of Renata Liwska and Mike Kerr. Renata Liwska is a NY Times Bestselling children’s book illustrator. Her books The Quiet Book, Red Wagon, and Once Upon a Memory have all been finalists for Canada’s Governor General Awards. Mike Kerr is an illustrator, animator, curator, writer, as well as an instructor of such things at the Alberta College of Art and Design.
We are interested in sharing stories. We express our hopes, dreams, memories, joys, and fears through the words we put on paper and the drawings and characters we make with pencil, paint, or computer. And we share these ideas through shows and collaborative events. At RandM we celebrate the past and look forward to the future. Our work and the work we embrace is rooted in craft, the foundations and traditions of the hand made, but we are also enthusiastic about change and looking for new and different ways to express ourselves.
