Breaking Pillow News Opens this Saturday, April 12th, 1:30-3:30pm

Argyle Fine Art is very excited to be presenting artist Tanya Owen and her limited edition of hand hand painted cushions, featuring some of our most beloved local celebrities from the local broadcasting team at CTV. JOIN US FOR THE OPENING RECEPTION on SATURDAY, APRIL 12th, 1:30-3:30pm.

As many Atlantic Canadians may remember, CTV used to be called ATV and was a main staple amoung many of us growing up with TV as a main source of news and entertainment. Whether it be a community news programs, such as LIVE AT 5-brought to popularity by the treasured local hero Dave Wright or the News currently with Bruce Frisko, the weather with Cindy Day or even beginning the holiday season with the Christmas Daddie's Telethon...we've been watching. 

Tanya's works celebrate these great folks, who are not only local celebrities but more importantly great citizens who love their community and give-back far beyond their jobs behind the desk or in-front of the camera. They have played an important role in making the watchers feel connected to their province and even towards them- even though many of us have never met them in person.

This show brings up interesting topics of how we view community, celebrity, the influence of media to our daily lives and more...ALL VERY SERIOUS topics of discussion but juxtaposed with being depicted on a functional work of art. in the form of portraits of these beloved individuals.
