Artist-at-Work Demonstrations

The Artist-at-Work program features an artist or group of artists who demonstrate their craft in a high-traffic area of the library. The artist performs two demonstrations in a one-month period, usually on Saturdays. One demonstration takes place at Central Library and one at a community library.

Nikki Proctor is a multimedia artist who loves experimenting with textures and colours. Her art includes found and recycled objects, printed images, ink, acrylic paint, metallic and wooden shapes, and more.

Nikki believes in the healing power of art, especially when we are at our most vulnerable. To help support her cause, Nikki collects art supplies to donate to the Grand River Hospital psychiatric unit, where hospital volunteers run activity sessions for patients. Donations of new and nearly new art supplies will be welcome during her time at the library.
