The 10 Collective Art Show continues. Returning to the Almonte Textile Museum in April 2025
WOW!! Another exciting, crowd-filled show at the Textile Museum in Almonte last weekend, (April 22 23, 2023). The artists outdid themselves with new work and were kept busy answering questions, wrapping paintings and enjoying the crowds of enthusiastic art lovers on two days that turned out to be sunny and warm. It was an exciting time for me too just to be associated with these fine artists and be energized by the many compliments from visitors coming my way. It all helps me to recharge my batteries and remind myself to get back outside with brushes in hand! Of course, the show wouldn't happen with out the capable planning and production talents of artist Eileen Hennemann, who brings professionalism and high energy to the show. The artists have decided that the The Ten Collective will now become a Biannual show. We hope to see everyone in April 2025 for another bash.
Participating artists: Lily Swain, Charles Spratt, Kaija Savinainen, Jennifer Noxon, Maria Moldovan, Katherine McNenly, Eileen Hennemann, Jill Halliday, Amelia Ah You, Bhat Boy, Alan Stanley
Manotick Art Association PLEIN AIR PAINTING PROGRAM 2024 The MAA Plein Air Program finished on a high note on Sept 28th at the Stewart Park in Perth. Some 20 painters turned out to enjoy the fall colours in warm, sunny weather. Some stayed for a closing lunch at Fiddleheads. Despite changeable weather and forest-fire smog, the 2023 program proved successful again. Plans are underway for an early start this year.
