Monday, September 24, 2012's official...FALL has Arrived! New Work by Donn Sabean coming soon to Argyle Fine Art!

It's hard to believe that Fall has already arrived- it seems the Summer just only began. However we're happy to see September and October fast approaching, for the Fall in Halifax, Nova Scotia brings great bounty of Art and Cultural events! It's the perfect time to visit the city-there's so much to see and do!

In addition to Studio Rally Map Weekend, this coming weekend and NOCTURNE on October 13th, Argyle Fine Art is also excited about being part of the upcoming CITY HARVEST event, organized in part with the I LOVE LOCAL business collective in the city. We were involved with the first of these events in May, called OPEN CITY, which turned out to be a wonderful experience indeed! So on October 27th and 28th, we'll be highlighting some of our artists at the gallery.

One exciting artist that will be at the gallery on Saturday, October 27th, from 11:30am-1:30pm is Donn Sabean.  

Donn will be on hand that afternoon to discuss how she creates these natural works of beauty, perfect for the season of harvest and for future gift-giving.

Some of you may know her as the past curator and buyer for the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Shop. Donn has been experimenting with a new body of work, that she will be sharing with us first! We're so pleased!! We think you'll find her technique and end results fascinating.

They are 100% wool, hand dyed and hand printed scarves. The process is commonly known as 'bundling' and/or 'eco-printing'.Printing logistics are: bundling fresh dye-stuff (leaves, flowers, etc.) inside prepared fabrics and applying moisture and heat until the natural dyes within the foliage leach into the cloth.
