FIN- Atlantic International Film Festival ART STAR!

 Horray!  If you are a film lover, you'll be happy to know that  FIN is happening again this year! In fact there are only a few more days to enjoy amazing local and international film either in person or online, so make sure to check that out and continue to support local artists and culture any way you can! 

Although we aren't showing films at the gallery, we do have an art star named CRAIG GUNN that is not only a visual artist showing at our gallery, but is the poster boy of FIN this year, along with another friend of our gallery (Hi Rena!)

We love the funny advertisement too! Check it out by clicking HERE or below!


 Although when Craig is acting, writing or producing- his style tends to take on a dark humour slant as you can see at his demo reel here, his visual art takes us to a place of calm and retreat away from it all. 

His most recent paintings now on display, feature the beautiful Chester, Nova Scotia (shown below). Have you checked out this view in person yet? If not, make sure to take a road trip to the South Shore, while the weather is divine!

Another favourite place for Craig to unwind and create in the South Shore is near LaHave- including the popular Rissers Beach and the picturesque village of Petite Rivere.
