The Portage Citizen — Photographer, author and multimedia artist John Nielsen will be a temporary PDAC artist in residence this Thursday.

The talented Nielsen will be working on his latest piece live in the main gallery July 19, between 1-8 p.m.

In 2015 Nielsen published a photo book of 90 historically important Portage la Prairie buildings. His work frequently graces the Portage & District Arts Centre walls and other venues, been published in the local newspaper and is active with his colleagues in the Portage Camera Club.

Part of his artistic portfolio will be with him as he creates and has a chance to talk about and answer questions about his work and processes.

It’s free and a great chance to take in the displays now showing in the PDAC galleries.

Fun fact:

Nielsen will have a booth at the 2018 Medieval Festival at Cooks Creek to display his art. Also, the local artist will be featured in a solo exhibition in the main gallery in November 2019.
