Wanted to relax a while and knew already that having a walk through your paintings will refresh and relax my mind; you do such happy paintings, so real. Love your colours...

A really big show - February 2020

The Collectif offers a free two-day art extravaganza, open to all. From wine & cheese to coffee with artists, the 4th annual opportunity to engage with visual artists, writers & live music at our usual unusual venue--a funeral home.

The Show At Brent's Place 2020 [Glengarry Funeral Home 580 Main St S, Alexandria.] Viewings are:

. Friday, 21 February: a grown-up evening with four large rooms of distinctive art. Wine & cheese with entertainment by singer/songwriter/recording artist Katie Ditschun. From 6 -9 p.m.

. Saturday, 22 February between 9 & 1, families are encouraged to view the almost 200 works - paintings, sculpture, carvings, clay, bronze, writings. Have coffee, chat with the artists: find out what all the fuss is about.

Special this year
1. The 2020 Challenge to Artists: Self-portrait, however that can be interpreted! Traditional, cartoon, abstract, collage, stained glass, ceramic, carved, written word. Can you find the creator in their work?

2. Celebrating our writer members in two ways:
. Original one-page stories or poems distributed throughout the venue
. Techno-drabbles, 50-word originals scrolling across screens. Testing writers' abilities to express ideas in a very confined space.

3. Guest artists: students taking part in programs at Community Living, will be exhibiting with us because art is for everyone. A Collective member is their instructor. Also 10% of Collectif sales go to Community Living.

What is The Collectif?
Founded in October 2016, The Collective is 94-members strong & growing. We're a not-for-profit assembly of artists creating community-building programs. By artists we include the visual, musical, and authorial.

Our third mural, fĂȘting Alexandria's 200th anniversary was installed in fall. We hold local museum shows & generate other community projects.

Creative use of resources is one of our mantras.
