As Time Goes By:Shelley Mitchell at the Halifax Central Library

We're very excited to let everyone know that our gallery artist, Shelley Mitchell is the first artist to showcase original works of art at the new SUNROOM location on the 5th floor of the Halifax Central Library. Everyone is invited to attend the opening reception on Wednesday, February 8th, 6pm-8pm.  The works will remain at the library for approximately 2 months, but are available for sale through our gallery should you be interested.

Shelley speaks about these latest works in her own words:

The paintings in this exhibition are my way of capturing the integration of the historic
and contemporary elements of this city through which we move. The buildings we
inhabit and pass by affect who we are and inform what we plan to become. I have
explored certain iconic Halifax structures that have historic and personal value without
too much concern for their accurate placement in time or space. I believe this library is
already becoming a new Halifax archetype and is contributing to the happiness, well
being and community spirit of our city in company with the significant structures
surrounding it.

We're also very excited to share two sneak peeks at work that will be in the show. Enjoy!  We'll have all the images available upon request, once the show officially opens this week.
