We'll start with the chickadee! You know how each year an animal emerges as the most popular animal in popular culture? Well we predict ,at least in these parts, it could easily be the chickadee! We had the most chickadee submissions this year than ever before. The one below is especially exquisite and by artist Twila Robar-DeCoste. Her gentle touch with this work especially represents the personality of this resilient favourite bird of all seasons here in Nova Scotia.

|Another exciting newcomer to the Pre-Shrunk show this year is Carlos Carrillo. Here is one of the few pieces left by him. It's called "Purple Finch: and is graphite on paper. So striking.|
