The Northern Nine Collective will be sharing a group exhibition at NorVA this spring.
The Northern Nine Collective is a group of artists from Northern Manitoba who participated in a mentorship with Diana Thorneycroft in 2017/18.
In the winter of 2017 the group committed to creating a collective exhibition in 2019, with the assistance of a curator. With funding from both Manitoba Arts Council and the NorVA Centre, the NorVA Gallery Manager, Mike Spencer, was able to secure Amy Karlinsky as the curator for the show.
The Northern Nine Collective includes: Avery Ascher, Clearwater Lake MB; Marg Britton, Flin Flon SK; Fran Cooper, The Pas MB; Karen Clark, Flin Flon MB; Matthew Enns, Flin Flon, MB; Patty Evans, Flin Flon MB; Cris Hogarth,
Flin Flon MB; Catherine Joa, Denare Beach SK;
Katie Kozak, Creighton SK.
Mike Spencer is the Project Manager.

Local artist and author Danita Stallard will be at NorVA March 1 and 2 selling copies of her new graphic novel Flann! and displaying selections from her artwork, including the hand-drawn pages from her manuscript. Hope to see you there!
NorVA Manager Mike Spencer had this to say about Flann!
"One part manga, one part steampunk, one part awesome! FLANN! is a truly original and creative reimagining of Flin Flon's namesake story "The Sunless City." It's got all the cool sci-fi bits without the patriarchal colonialist overtones, and it's actually fun to read! I can hardly wait for Volume 2."
If you're feeling the winter blues, it's time to start planning your summer! Learn more about the fabulous NorVA artist retreat here.
