The Iris Group is a Durham Region-based women's visual arts collective started in 1996 as a forum to share ideas, offer mutual support, and develop projects that further the overall intentions of the group. Based in Oshawa, meetings and activities radiate from this location. IRIS has exhibited work and mounted women- centred outreach projects in galleries and on campuses in Ontario, Alberta and New York State. Members have exhibited across Canada, in the U.S., Mexico and China and will be an official Independent Project for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2014, in TAC Art/Work Gallery October 4, 2014. Titled WhiteOut, the exhibition includes IRIS and Friends and will continue to October 30. In May 2015, Filmic, with all ten members, will mark their inaugural show at Whitby Station Gallery.
