Meet Our Flock!

You may well know we are big fans of our fine feathered friends here at the gallery, and today we'd love to introduce you to our flock...

Folkart birds by Basil Doucette charm everyone who happens upon them.

Dorothyanne Brown's felted animals are all so wonderful, but her birds, like Olivia the Oriel, really take flight!

Even Shelley Mitchell, whose most recent show, "Craft", opened on Friday, can't shy away from the birds with this cormorant.

Artist Michelle St Onge's most recent series of watercolour birds are just one of the many mediums she likes to work in.

Lastly one of our newest artists, Miyoshi Kondo, has a series titled "The Chickens Come Home to Roost", featuring chickens setting up house in all different kinds of homes.
