The Northern Nine Collection is a display at Norva by nine northern artists. One of the artists Karen Clark says it’s the result of a mentorship with Winnipeg artist Diana Thorneycroft with the group committing to a creative art exhibition this year. She says it continues to develop with curator and writer Amy Karlinsky working with them on writing about their art work and its development. She explains at this point they’re just putting up at Norva works of theirs that they expect to include in the blue Show which is the name of the exhibit and then works that are maybes that might be included after they as a group have worked with Amy to put together their best ideas and their connected thoughts about their work.
Clark adds the exhibit will continue to be displayed this month at Norva with the official opening for the final works and related documentation in April.
