The Northern Nine are a group of Canadian women visual artists whose work explores the personal and the universal. They have evolved from a core group that has shown together since 1993. They meet for the purpose of mutual support and inspiration. Each individual is an artist well established in her own career and most are teachers as well. Together they represent a broad spectrum of media. Some have been friends who have encouraged each other creatively for more than two decades.
When they exhibit together, they explore the personal and the universal. They usually include individual works as well as collaborative pieces. Their collective multi-disciplinary work is committed to the search for beauty, a passion for our planet and the examination of what it is to be human.
To quote one of the members, “We feel that our work speaks to a global audience and are interested in partnering with similar groups in Canada and internationally. We know that our work resonates with other artists and the exploration and sharing of that energy needs to be presented to the public. The F.A.N. Club has invited us to partner with them in a show, and we have all worked for the last year to develop it. The show is called “Convergence".
