Argyle Fine Art is looking for artists and makers to participate in our upcoming display of ornaments that folks can use as ornaments on Christmas trees could also be used to have hang in the home or cottage all year round. We are looking for themes that would appeal to tourists but also locals alike. Two dimensional and three dimensional! Think beyond the traditional lobsters and lighthouses.:-)  Small paintings, ceramics, textile, glass, wood, screenprinted, paper etc…it could be smaller versions of what you already love to create! Price points can be a variety, however we are hoping to have ornaments retail for no more than $65. Want to throw around an idea you may have? Get in touch!


Depending on the response to this call-out, we would like to take on 10 of your handmade, hangable creations! This could be 10 of one object or a variety of objects.  

Imagine you're on vacation in Nova Scotia and you wanted a little piece of this beautiful province to take home with you for your own Christmas tree. Examples of things we would find interesting:


  • Local wildlife, plants & flowers
  • Iconic architecture (row houses, clock tower, bridge, ferry)
  • Donair, pizza
  • Animals/objects
  • Canadiana
  • Even more quirky smaller versions of some of your original creations (ie if you create mugs with critters, - maybe you create the critters as two or three dimensions for an ornament version)


Send us photos of what you’d like to bring us in the format of JPEGS to and we’ll be in touch! We’d like to include as many folks as we can, however we will have limited space so we may not be able to include everyone. The deadline to send us your images; so that we have enough time for them to arrive is June 18th.

We will install them all in our gallery windows beginning on July 13th and have them on display throughout the rest of the year.
