All the Colours: Gordon MacDonald Show, Pride Celebration and a Trash Can Bouquet!

We're getting very excited about what an amazing weekend this is shaping up to be! For starters, we are showcasing the latest works by artist Gordon MacDonald, opening tonight, 7pm-9pm. All are welcomed to attend this evening and there's no need to dress up fancy! Just come as you are and bring a friend. The art is just stunning and no words can sum it up, except maybe WOW.  We'll also have special treats provided by TART AND SOUL (a new wonderful bakery and cafe that just opened on Coburg Road) and we do have air conditioning, so you can beat the heat while here too.

You can see the entire show by Gordon MacDonald now over HERE

As many of you know, Halifax is also excited to be celebrating PRIDE HALIFAX this week, with the big kick off being the parade tomorrow, Saturday, July 22nd afternoon. Our gallery is the perfect viewing location, by the way! 

Gord is also very excited about the weekend. Here's his recent  Facebook posting: 

I hope people feel welcome to attend the opening tonight or the show over the next week or two.
Prime Minister Trudeau will be walking by the gallery on Saturday along with the Pride Parade. LGBTQ men and women have supported Argyle Fine Art over the years and I wonder if I would have made a living without their support. This should be a fun weekend for everyone. Thank you!
Btw: Portuguese custards at the opening!!!!

Tomorrow at the Parade, we'll be playing QUEEN inside to compliment our window display, featuring the great Freddie Mercury! We'll even have mustaches here for you all to wear so please make sure to drop by and have your picture taken.We're having way too much fun!

We'll also be selling tickets in support of the AIDS COALITION OF NOVA SCOTIA. Tickets are just $2 each or 3 for $5. You'll have the chance to WIN this basket of MAC Cosmetics, valued at $500 while supporting a worthy cause!

 And finally, if you are an early bird on Sunday morning, you'll see us working with the Ikebana Shop to take a regular garbage can and transform it into a beautiful bouquet of flowers, which will stay intact for one entire week. The garbage can near our gallery, to be specific!  Here is Miyako Ballesteros planning out her living floral sculpture. We can't wait to show you the final product next week..stay tuned!
