Another wonderful place to visit

TripAdvLogoIsn’t it just great when someone appreciates what you’re doing? The folks at The Wilder were pleased with this review and justifiably so. What’s extra good from here in the gallery is that we had a really nice mention too.
Thank you ‘atlanticbase’ from Halifax!

Through the Hoops

Kempt Lake Gallery is delighted to be co-sponsor of a croquet event! In what promises to be a great day of fun to round off the summer, The Wilder Restaurant and General Store are organising their 1st Annual Croquet Tournament on 28th September.

Some very beautiful croquet equipment has been acquired just for this event and preparations are well under way for the three lawns where the courses will be marked out. Croquet is a fantastic game of skill and strategy, as well as being great fun, so register soon to be sure of playing.

Full details can be found here.

Everywhere To Go (and coming to Kempt!)

Kempt Lake Gallery is delighted to announce its first event sponsorship . And what a great first it promises to be, with the outstanding Ian Sherwood appearing in concert at our neighbour’s place, the MTRI on 21st September. Numbers are obviously limited, so we believe tickets will be taken up quickly.

Ian has included this ‘house concert’ as part of the tour with his new album ‘Everywhere To Go.’ Not only have we teamed up with the MTRI (who will also benefit from ticket sales) but we’ve arranged a special ‘Supper Before Music’ deal with The Wilder Restaurant. Concert only tickets are just $15 while ‘Supper Before Music’ is excellent value at $30.

More details here. The event is also posted on our Facebook page.

Well Worth The Wait

Over Her Shoulder
Looking over her shoulder – detail from Journey by Phyllis Woods

It’s not often we welcome a single piece of work from a new artist, but we have today. For many reasons it’s been a few months since we saw Journey  by Phyllis Woods. Opening the package this morning we hoped we’d remembered it, hoped it would be as good as the pictures in our heads.

We were not disappointed. It’s a simply fabulous piece and has already drawn admiring words and lingering looks from visitors in the gallery.

Journey by Phyllis WoodAs usual, even our best photographs don’t do justice to the quality of the art. What you see is no more than a flavour at best. To fully appreciate it, drop in to the gallery and take a few minutes to enjoy the skill of the artist and the ideas her work provokes.
