Round & Round Again

Brigitte St-Arnaud - Rumor

Well, our circular themed group show is coming to an end. We wanted to take this time to thank all of the amazing artists who participated in our
GET-A-ROUND exhibit.

Featuring over 30 works of art and 21 artists, this show was one to behold! Some artists had a challenge embracing the modern style of the circle format, while for others it was their preferred medium for their craft.

Group shows are one of our favourite ways to discover new artist, it also give our regular artists a space to play and experiment.

These are just some of the artworks available to the show.  You can view the entire showcase here

Renee Brazeau - Overlooking CapeSplit

This show really embraced diversity in medium, featuring everything from Oil paintings, Acrylic, Gouache and even textile/embroidery!  

Erin Hollingshead - Morning Moon

Paulette Melanson - Underwater Moment

Alyssa Doggett - Almost There
Alyssa Doggett - A Lawrencetown Road

Raquel Roth - Pleasantly Peachy

Jessica Gay - When Spring Rolls Around

Surrounded By Beauty


My name is Nancy Wilson and I love to be in the company of beautiful things.

That is why I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Argyle Fine Art. It’s a place where I go to surround myself with art, design, colours and beauty.

I have always been drawn to projects that emphasize beauty, whether it is web design, household renovations, interior design, or hanging art for friends and clients. Most recently I have been creating felt art.

I have often worked in exchange for art and have been fortunate to work with some talented artists. I have collected some great pieces that have moved with me from place to place.

I originally came to Halifax from New Brunswick to attend Saint Mary’s University. I’ve moved around and lived in different parts of Canada, but I always end up back in Halifax. I guess that makes it my home.

I will be helping out at special events and openings and taking care of some behind-the-scenes projects as well. 

I am looking forward to meeting you and talking about art and beauty with you.

Can You See it Now?...How About Now?

If you happened to stop by our GET-AROUND group show, you might have noticed this particular painting by Kyla Dooley. Does it look familiar to you?

Inspired by the standard AutoRefractor test during eye exams, you may recognize this little house or sometimes a hot air balloon at the end of a long stretch of road.

Can you see it now?...How about now?
Kyla Dooley is a visual artist based in Vancouver & Halifax, working within the realm of expanded media. Her practice spans a plethora of disciplines where the concept informs the choice of media.

Our GET-A-ROUND show is open to view until the end of April. Feel free to pop by anytime to see this eye catching piece by Kyla.

It's Nice to Meet you

My name is Kassandra. I am an artist/illustrator proudly based in Dartmouth, NS.

A bit of history so we can get to know each other. My career began in retail 10 years ago, working in record stores, comic shops and most recently a tattoo parlour. While I enjoy all aspects of retail and business my true passion lies in art and creative forms.

You may know me from my bottle cap pins and funky illustrations seen around the internet. I really enjoy making art from a silly playful perspective and try not to take life too seriously. 

That's why I am so excited to join the team here are Argyle Fine Art! I cant wait to meet so many of the faces that make this gallery a focal point of the community.

Please feel free to drop in and say hi! or message me on Instagram and introduce yourself! @kassandra_lois
