As of October 2018 Collective membership is $25/year. Besides visibility, community & professional development, this is what you also have access to:
Discounts from suppliers. Members are recognized with discounts from:
HACHEM an artists’ supply shop in Vaudreuil. (Worth the drive!)
Hamster in Alexandria offers member discounts on paints.
Members can participate, show–even sell–their work at our many Collective events, such as:
- Annually, The Show. At Brent’s Place
- One month show at the Glengarry, Nor’Westers & Loyalist Museum from May to June 2019
- The nine-day exhibit in July 2019 at Glengarry Pioneer Museum
Just to name a few.
We also have regular member meetings with discussions &/or demonstrations on matters of artistic interest. Oh & good coffee with home-baking to help you keep up your strength!
Special Interest Groups
Members also can join our SIGs for the chance to discuss with other like-minded artists, maybe design/share group projects to hone skills for professional development or community enrichment.
Another Collective Membership benefit! The Framing Project . . .
We’ve commissioned a seasoned bargain hunter to source gently used frames for The Collective. Currently about 60 frames are in inventory, with more arriving regularly.
Some are in perfect condition; others would benefit from a lick of paint. Many include canvases to be painted over. Some are modern & others quite old. Each sells for only $5.
