In April 2019, I had the privelege of photographing The Ten Collective’s annual art show and sale in Almonte’s beautiful and historic Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. If you haven’t been, be sure to make it an annual part of your must-see events calendar.
About The Ten Collective
In the Fall of 2017 Eileen Hennemann invited nine other artists to gather for a presentation on an idea she had for a show. A budget and venue were suggested and a rough agenda for a two-day exhibit. The group was christened The Ten Collective and over the following months, the trademark, branding and promotional material were created by Allan Stanley of HennemannStanley.com.
For three months the ten artists wrote blog pieces to share on the website and promoted the show on social and print media, and on Rogers Cable. Several local businesses offered support by sharing their premium products during the event. The first show was very successful, and the second and third shows even more so, with approximately 1,400-1,600 people visiting over two days, and most of the artists’ work being purchased.
The name “The Ten Collective” is now well known as it has become part of the fabric of the charming town of Almonte. It is proud to present its exhibition in a National Historic Site of Canada, the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum.
Thank you to our supporters, patrons and visitors for wanting to be part of the art community and spending time experiencing and enjoying the work of The Ten Collective artists ~ a group of ten Canadian artists featuring diverse backgrounds and styles
