We also loved to learn about her obsession with the beach and sand. Kimberley has an extensive sand collection stored safely away in carefully labeled mason jars. The sand makes it's way in to her art. You'll find some sand from Bermuda as well local Nova Scotia beaches in her latest paintings on display.
Kimberley showed us a few works in progress and even got out the torch to show us how she creates the smooth and shiney surfaces. WOW! It was amazing to see her at work and in her element. Safety first! Mask and gloves are an important part of the process too!
We can't wait for you all to meet Kimberley Eddy at the gallery this Friday, May 11th at the opening of her show, 6:30-8:30pm. But if you can't get here then, just drop by anytime since the show continues for a few weeks. All of the paintings will also be online under our NOW SHOWING part of this blog too, once the show has officially opened. You may also have a chance to meet Kim here on Saturday afternoon...she hopes to pop by later in the afternoon.
We are so thankful to work with so many talented and gracious artists like Kimberley. Please make an effort to support our artists and local businesses. Pick up something special for yourself, a graduate or maybe even your Mom...as it's Mother's Day this Sunday! See you soon!
