Member Benefits

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
HACHEM an artists’ supply shop in Vaudreuil. (Worth the drive!)

Dual Bus Card Ad-01 Hamster in Alexandria offers member discounts on paints.

Group Shows

Members can participate, show–even sell–their work at our many Collective events, such as:

  • Annually, The Show. At Brent’s Place
  • WOW
  • 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.
