GIVE ART THIS HOLIDAY's not as expensive as you think!

 We're here to remind you that giving original artwork and  handmade things as gifts for the holidays is possible on a budget! 

One idea we love popping into people's minds is to take any of our cards (ranging in prices of $4 to $9)  or postcards ($3)  in a frame!  Presto- amazing artwork as a gift!  You can pick up an affordable frame at many shops downtown or simply find one at a thrift or discount store near you!

Assembly Of Text Card- Look at that cute cat!

Many of our makers up-cycle things into art. Especially wearable art, like these bottlecap pins by Kassandra Lois. Here are a few examples of some of the pieces she made for the holidays, but we have lots of other designs at the gallery to choose from. These are just $8 each, and are easy for gift swaps at work, stocking stuffers or to simply pop in the mail to surprise a friend. 

A very popular ornament again this year has been the HOME A LOT and the more regional humour of Santa's sleigh getting stuck at the Halifax-Dartmouth Bridge (it happens a lot here with big trucks!)  These are both by Chris Smith and are only $14 each, and easy to give as gifts! 

Of course, Basil Doucette (86 years young) is still making his amazing original folk art birds, animals and for the holidays small hand-carved ornaments too! Look at these cuties!  Ranging in price from $15-$20


We even have original SOFT SCULPTURE- these little critters are called GREEBS by artist Troy Benoit! They are screen printed and hand sewn using up-cycled fabric...some even glow in the dark! They range in price from $25- $60

Of course, we have lots of original paintings ranging in sizes and these $20 originals shown below!

Raquel Roth, Acrylic on Canvas

Amanda Ingram, Watercolour on Paper

Of course we have lots of larger works too, in a variety of mediums!  We especially love this new colourful one by Gordon MacDonald- this is still curing but pretty spectacular!

Gordon MacDonald, Norris Point, 36" x 36", oil on board

Or if your tastes are more suited to abstract works, why not check out the art of Paulette Melanson, like this new beauty that just arrived today!

Paulette Melanson, A Time of Transition, 18" x 24", acrylic on canvas

Adorable small Cardinal Paintings by Sabine Kearns are waiting for you! $95 each

POP BY SOON and take a look around or visit us over at for even more art! Don't forget we SHIP WORLDWIDE, SELL GIFT CERTIFICATES ONLINE (right here on this blog)  or in person, can arrange commissions, happy to arrange payment plans up to 6 months on art and more!
