The new show in the gallery will open on Thursday 24th July with pieces from Anna Horsnell Wade’s Art of Jazz series along with other new work and favourites from 2014.
To celebrate the opening please join us between 4.30pm and 7pm for a chat, a look at some superb paintings and drawings and a glass of bubbles (or juice!) Everyone is welcome.
Starting Thursday 10th July, for 3 days, there’ll be a new face welcoming visitors to the gallery. Not that Tammy Lewis is new to the gallery, she’s been a regular visitor and the gallery has been host to several of her works.
Tammy is an artist working with a very difficult medium – glass. But she creates truly inspiring images, often with forest or ocean themes, and has a growing reputation not only here in Nova Scotia but in the USA and Europe too.
We hope you’ll take the opportunity to drop in and meet her.
(Opening hours will vary according to Tammy’s family commitments.)
The historic LC1, affectionately known as Elsie, has been put on show at the gallery today to coincide with the visit of the Tour de France to Cambridge, England. The gallery has close ties to Cambridge International Arts who have been involved in several art projects marking the arrival of ‘le Tour’.
Elsie has been donated by the Eaton Foundation. At Sunday evening’s private unveiling a member of the family was delighted, remarking how proud the original owners would have been to see Elsie displayed in this way.
More details of Elsie and how she came to be in the gallery can be found here.
From the wonderful variety of art currently on display in the gallery, there is one obvious candidate for today’s posting. Liberty1 by Fran Whitelaw is one of a series and demonstrates Fran’s unique style and expression.
