The Glengarry Artists Collective Collective will offer a free, two-day art exhibit, open to all. The event will include wine & cheese and coffee with artists, to create the third annual opportunity to engage with 46 visual artists, a number of writers and a songstress at the group’s usual , yet unusual venue – a funeral home.
The show is called, “At Brent’s Place 2019” and it takes place at the Glengarry Funeral Home, located at 580 Main Street South in Alexandria. The event includes a wine and cheese evening on Friday, February 22, where visitors can enjoy four large rooms of distinctive art. There will be music and song provided by Gracie “G-Sharp” Graham. The doors open at 6 p.m.
On Saturday, February 23, families are encouraged to stop by to view nearly 200 words, including paintings, sculpture, clay, bronze and other metal works. Enjoy coffee with the artists. New this year, writer members are being celebrated in two ways. Original, one-page stories or poems will be distributed throughout the venue. Plus, “Drabbles”, 50-word original pieces, will test writers’ abilities to express ideas in a very confined space.
Seven guest artists and students taking part in programs at Community Living, will be exhibiting with the Glengarry Artists’ Collective because art is for everyone. A Collective member is their instructor. Ten per cent of Collective sales will be donated to Community Living.
