by Eileen HennemannIn April 2018, ten Mississippi Mills artists held their first show, expecting 500 people to visit.
By the end of the two-day exhibit, more than 1,200 had attended the show and visited the town.
The Ten Collective will mount its second exhibit of new work in the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, 3 Rosamond St. E., Almonte on Saturday, April 6 & Sunday, April 7, 2019, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. both days. Admission and parking are free.
The show will feature artwork in a variety of styles in acrylic, oil watercolour and mixed media, with a selection of paintings for sale.
“The success of last year’s show and the demand for our work convinced us to mount a second exhibit this year,” said The Ten Collective founder Eileen Hennemann. “We are very excited about sharing our work with each other’s networks and about holding the exhibit once again in a Canadian national historic site — the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. It is a perfect venue for a group of our size.”
The Ten Collective artists are Amelia Ah You, Jill Halliday, Eileen Hennemann, Rosemary Leach, Marina May Raike (Malvada), Katherine McNenly, Kaija Savinainen Mountain, Jennifer Noxon, Lily Swain and Eleanor Doran.
