Sanjeev Sivarulrasa, artist and gallery owner, will be our guest speaker at the September Mixer. Formerly a lawyer before he became a professional visual artist, Sanjeev launched Sivarulrasa Studio & Gallery in the Thoburn Mill in the Fall of 2014. The Gallery hosts rotating exhibitions and represents leading artists in Eastern Ontario. Sanjeev will talk about his reasons for choosing Almonte to locate the Gallery, in particular the vibrant arts community in Mississippi Mills and the growing reputation of Almonte as a cultural hub in Eastern Ontario. He will also share his lessons learned and ideas for building synergies with other businesses to help grow the local arts and culture sector. And we’ll get to learn more about the local light pollution bylaw that he sees as another major attraction of Mississippi Mills. Sanjeev will also serve as our host for the evening, and there will be plenty of complimentary wine and refreshments – all welcome!
