STUDIO SATURDAYS with artist Jennifer Harrison

FINALLY!  We think it's safe to say that we have entered into the season of SUMMER and what better way to celebrate it than with a new work of art!  Take a road trip with us, as we take you inside the studio of artist Jennifer Harrison.

Jennifer is originally from Ontario...but came to Nova Scotia a few years back and fell in love with it and decided to stay! She bought a home in Lunenburg and set up a studio almost right away. You can catch her there sometimes by chance or appointment- if you go, tell her we sent you with the Code words: From Argyle with Love.  But of course, we always have recent works by Jennifer at the gallery and invite you to visit us!

Just look at all the PAINT! 
"Fisheries Museum", 30" x 40", Oil on Canvas, Inspired by her new "hometown" of Lunenburg

Harrison's trademark texture is achieved in several layers. Primed canvases are coated with a thick layer of acrylic polymer, then the wet 'putty' is carved into with paint scrapers, knives and brushes. 


Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Make sure to check out Jennifer's artwork online if you can't get in to see it in person , check it out over HERE
