We've got some amazing NEW paintings from Artist Danny Abriel currently on view at the Gallery this week. If you're from here or spent any in Nova Scotia, some of these scenes will no doubt be familiar to you.
Included in this new series of paintings is this lone tree that stands in a field on the side of Highway 102, and just south of Shubenacadie. The tree has captured the attention of visitors and artists alike..."Local lore puts it at three centuries or so old, which means that below its branches some of the first European settlers in this province, and the Mi’kmaq before them, walked." - John DeMont, Chronicle Herald

As a landscape painter, Danny is drawn to organic shapes, colours, and the natural elements that surround him; Wood, Water, Stone, and Sky are all carefully arranged, the building blocks for each new composition.

Living in Halifax, Danny makes time to be in Nature. Access to walking trails and parks are all within reach, and Danny often revisits areas that are familiar to him, and draws his inspiration from the surrounding area.
