For that special someone on a special day: Graduation Gifts and Wedding Gifts Galore and MORE!

Argyle Fine Art loves to always source out the best of Atlantic Canadian artists, in order to always have unique one-of-a-kind, creative, affordable local works for you to enjoy or give as a gift! We also have so much art, that we often have things tucked away, so remember to always ask us, if you are looking for anything in particular! Many of our artists are also open to commissions. We also can arrange a gift registry or provide special art experiences and gift certificates, if you're looking for that extra special thing but not sure exactly what.....Art makes people happy...proven time and time again!

 This time of year, saying CONGRATULATIONS is often in order to many of our family and friends. Especially if they are getting ready to graduate from any Grade...or maybe even from University. Here's an original screenprint on fibre by Michelle Saint-Onge that would fit the bill quite well, we think.

Acadia University- Michelle St-Onge
Or perhaps a memory of Halifax and it's street corners and colourful houses....
Barrington and Prince- Michelle St-Onge

Tower Road- Michelle St-Onge
Some younger graduates may appreciate something a bit more playful, such as a wide selection of FOLD-ED's by Ed Beals...papercraft you can cut and fold and create with...( they make brilliant alternatives to cards for all ages, by the way, and they are only $8 each or 3 for $20)

And of course, you can't forget about our ever increasing amazing selection of LEGO JEWELLERY by young artists Emma and Liam Travers! Earrings, Headbands, Bracelets, Rings, Tie Tacks, Cuff Links and MORE!

Many people have been drawn to the natural beauty of the latest jewellery by Rare Specimens (see more samples on this blog from June 18th!!) There are earrings and rings that are perfect for any gift giving need! All are just $40 too!

If you are looking for a unique gift to bring home with you while travelling to Nova Scotia, or just want to bring a little Nova Scotia to your home for under $20, consider a folk art bird by Basil two are ever alike!!  These are great for new baby gifts too, we think!

Or Perhaps you'd like to SAIL AWAY on a paper-mache ship by Becky Thompson! (they look great hanging on the wall or sitting anywhere in your home or office...small and large ships are available and all are different!) 

We have sooooooooooooooo many artists that love to paint what's all around them, whether it be cityscapes, our local parks, wildlife, flora, or the seaside...come by and see what you can see!
