New Artist in Residence for the James River Park

Apr 28, 2018 | News

Friends is please to introduce Shay Wilson, the new park artist-in-residence. A visual artist and recent painting and printmaking graduate from VCU, Shay has committed to environmental conservation by providing opportunities to creatively interact with nature. She plans to offer monthly workshops which help participants interact with nature through sketching, painting and creating art with natural materials.

Shay’s first workshop will be Sunday, May 27 at the 42nd Street entrance from 2 – 4 pm. Can’t make this workshop? Keep an eye out for announcements of her upcoming workshops on our Facebook page, the Park’s global calendar and our monthly e-news.

To learn more about Shay’s work visit and if you have any questions about any of Shay’s events you can email her at [email protected].

In 2016 Friends sponsored Lauren Minor’s residency through a series of creative writing workshops. We are please to have the opportunity to repeat this experience through a different medium.
