Fire's Burning, Fire's Burning Draw Nearer, Draw Nearer

Although our HYGGE has come to an official end, you can still catch a few works from that exhibit in our lower gallery this weekend and over the March break week ahead, so get cozy with art.

Yoko White, Cozy Fireplace, 4"x5", Cotton Embroidery

Today is a pretty messy- windy- rainy- slushy -snowish type of day here in Nova Scotia, and the thought of cuddling up near a warm fire is pretty lovely. If you're like us at the gallery, we don't have a fireplace on hand so the fire themed art from HYGGE will have to do. It can certainly warm us up- just look for yourselves!

Dawn Kempster, Mind the Flankers, 15"x30", Acrylic on Canvas
Jamie Lee Lightle, Cozy Studio Still Life, 12"x12", Acrylic on Board

You can almost feel it....hear it....smell it.  Of course, our minds also wander to thoughts of campfires and beach bonfires in the Spring or Summer like the paintings below. Can hardly wait until it's that time of year again!

Mark Brennan, Last Light at Melopsesketch Lake, Liscomb NS, 11"x14", Acrylic on Canvas

Barbara O'Neill, Campfire on My Beach, 20"x24", Oil on Board

And speaking of campfires, wouldn't these patches by Amber Solberg look great on your backpack, hoodie or camp hat? SMOKIN'! They are each one-of-a-kind, hand-embroidered, easy iron-on and only $35. Who says original art has to be expensive- not us!

 Drop by for some last minute HYGGE!  Make sure to check out what other things we have happening over March Break HERE too!
