What's Happening This Weekend!

Drop by the Gallery tomorrow (Saturday) and get inspired! We've got lots of amazing art to discover this weekend...and if you haven't been by to see us since the Re-Opening in June, now is a good a time as any!    

As part of our weekend celebration we'll be accepting completed CREATIVE CANDLES tomorrow for the Raymond Taavel Park.  For those of you who want to drop by and decorate a Candle in person, we'll be providing a creative space outside the gallery with everything you need to get crafting! 

We'd like to thank JAMPY for making the candles, and the DowntownHalifax Business Commission for sponsoring the project. 

You can also deliver your finished candles to the Raymond Taavel Park between 5 - 6 pm on July 20th. A volunteer will be available on-site to receive and display the candles in the Park.

Creative Candles will be on display the following week and can be re-used year after year!

Here's a picture of Adriana being interviewed at Raymond Taavel Park earlier this week by CBC News. You can read the full article HERE.

We're also excited to bring you some amazing new watercolour paintings by Gallery Artist Michelle SaintOnge!

This "pop-up" exhibition will be on view all next week, so be sure to drop by the gallery to see these amazing works in person!  Featured here is; "Intercoastal waterway; Florida, Blue Beauty", 20" x 24", watercolour on paper mounted on board.

From out of town and can't make it down?  No problem!  You can also view the collection online on our Flickr Page HERE

The Summer days can be hot!  Quench that thirst with an ice cold beverage using one of these cool new mugs by Julian Covey! We've got a great selection of styles, and colours to choose from.  We'll even include a free Soda from Garrison with every purchase!

We'll also be promoting the new "Covid-19 Commandments" Poster by Kerry Hodgson. The poster features the collection of images from Kerry's popular "Thou Shalt..." Suite, which you may remember from our Pandemic Postcard Series.  

Last but not least, We're thrilled to announce the opening of Gordon MacDonald's solo  exhibition, on Thursday, July 23. We can't wait to see what Gordon has in store for us this year...images will be made available early next week so stay tuned!
