For AITA 2015, participating artists created panels of the mainstreet buildings in Almonte in 1991 that when assembled at AITA, depicted the street as it would have appeared 25 years ago at the first Art In The Attic show.
David Whitely was the driving force behind this project, preparing the panels and determining scale and providing copies of the buildings to be done on each panel. Each artist then used their own style and techiniques to create their panel. David handled the mechanics of putting the panels together with explanations of each panels to create a unique streetscape that stretched across the entire stage in the Almonte Old Town Hall.
We have been asked to put our streetscape on display at the gallery in Fairview Manor in Almonte. It will be on display from 13 Oct to 8 Dec. David is also handling the mechanical changes required to hang the streetscape in the gallery. Thanks David !!!
The Fairview Manor Gallery is located at 75 Spring St in Almonte.

25th ART IN THE ATTIC – NOT “JUST ANOTHER ART SHOW”
Almonte Old Town Hall
Fri 8 May 7-9 pm, Sat 9 May 10 am – 7pm, Sun 10 May 10 am – 4pm
We are so excited ! It is the silver anniversary of Art In The Attic and we are pulling out all the stops ! It starts with our grand opening on Friday 8 May at 7 pm in the Almonte Old Town Hall. In addition to the exciting works of almost two dozen local artists, we have invited Avenir Design Studio to do a fashion show, partway through the evening, on the stage and amongst the art boards – art is not just hung on walls….
There will be art in almost every media, oils, acrylic, glass, photography, textile and more. Many of your favorite artists are returning plus some “fresh” new ones. AITA has a reputation of offering wonderful and affordable art and something will surely speak to you.
For a number of years we have invited local high school artists to join us, not only to showcase and promote young talent but also give them the chance to experience a “gallery” show. This year we are very pleased to show the amazing talent of the art students from Notre Dame High School. We also invite one of the inspirational speakers we have had throughout the year to display their work at AITA and so we are thrilled to have our special guest artist, Barbara Carroll, with her renowned textile art. Throughout the weekend, live music will be provided by local musicians of the musical group Shipman’s Mills – talent abounds in this area !
The Almonte and Area Artists’ Association has long been an integral part of the community. In celebration of this, we have collectively created a 26 foot streetscape of the main street of Almonte as it would have been in 25 years ago. For the past few week, the local shopkeepers in downtown Almonte have also allowed us to display works in their storefront windows. When you come to Art In The Attic you will receive a package with a map and discount coupons and cards from participating stores. Start at the art show, stroll down the Riverwalk and then walk along Mill St and enjoy the unique offering of the downtown merchants and imagine what it was like 25 years ago – make it a day, make it an artful experience !
And last but not least, the staff of the Humm will be doing “the Humm Selection” of their favorite pieces. We all truly appreciate the fantastic support of the arts that they provide and love to have them participate in our show.

ALMONTE AND AREA ARTISTS ASSOCIATION (4A)
ART IN THE ATTIC 9,10, 11 May (Mothers’ Day weekend)
AMAZING AFFORDABLE ART IN ALMONTE
The Art In the Attic Show and Sale (AITA) will be returning for its 24th annual appearance ! The dates this year are 9,10, 11 May (Mothers’ Day weekend) at the Almonte Old Town Hall.
As usual, the inspiring works of over twenty artists from the Almonte and Area Artist Association (4A), our special guest artist Dale Dunning, as well as guest student artists from Almonte District High School, will be showcased including a special display with the theme “Celebrating Mothers”.
Once again, at the Grand Opening on Friday evening 9 May, the Humm will judge their distinguished “Humm Selection” amongst the artwork. But what is different this year is that the 4A will be partnering with the businesses in downtown Almonte. They will help to promote both the art show and the local merchants. Artwork from 4A members will be displayed in the store fronts of downtown shops starting the second week in April, and in return, visitors to AITA will receive a gift package containing Mothers Day Weekend coupons/promotions by participating stores. Avenir Design Studio will even be putting on a fashion show at AITA on Sat 10 May at 4 pm to showcase their wonderful women’s fashion wear. The objective is to “Make It a Day” by starting at Art In The Attic and then following a suggested route downtown to enjoy the wonderful heritage and stores and restaurants for the rest of the day in beautiful downtown Almonte. 4A was looking for a more interactive arrangement with local businesses rather than just asking for sponsorship money and are hoping that this will be a win-win partnership for everyone – visitors, artists and local merchants.
