Notice biographique
Wilhelmina Alexander (a.k.a. 'Mina') was born on July 2nd, 1871 in Hamilton, Ontario. She studied art at the Hamilton Art School with S. John Ireland, privately with J.S. Gordon, and later in Montreal with G. Horne Russell. She was president of the Women's Art Association of Canada, Hamilton Branch, from 1925 to 1927. Alexander exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy in 1929 and 1930, with the Women's International Exhibition in Detroit, at their invitation, in 1929, and with the Art Association of Montreal in 1931 and 1935. Alexander held regular widely-attended exhibitions in her home both to show her own work, a collection of still-life, landscapes, marines and flower studies, and to support younger artists. She also raised money in this way for charity, including such organizations as the YM/YWCA and the Red Cross during the wars.
