The Nipissing Region Curatorial Collective has published a book about Eleanor Mackey

51 pages, 23 mm X 18 mm, 23 colour images

From the publisher:

Eleanor Mackey was a pioneer of abstract art who lived for much of her life on Bear Mountain at the northern edges of Algonquin Park in Northern Ontario, Canada. The Nipissing Region Curatorial Collective has published Edges of Abstraction: The Art of Eleanor Mackey (1932-2014) documenting her work and life as an artist living in isolation and raising a family of five. The book helps all of us to understand and remember a beautiful artist, her life, art and place in Canadian art history.

Our NRCC group has been developing and producing arts events, exhibitions and documents since 2013. We are focused on the art of Northern Ontario and on artworks that derive from nature and the environment. We will be sending copies to libraries, galleries and schools across Canada and offering it for sale to the public.
