ABOUT THE ART

Alice Vander Vennen has been a professional mixed media and textile artist for over 30 years. She has shown extensively across North America, including juried exhibits in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Toronto. Her work is in private and public collections in Canada, the United States and abroad. Alice is represented by one of Canada?s finest galleries, the OENO Gallery, and she teaches at the Haliburton School of Fine Art. A child of parents who left war-torn Holland, Alice's art seeks to capture stories of loss and hope, courage and strength, finding the narrative in gathered textiles from divergent cultures, sculpted with found objects.
