Although the doors of our Gallery remain closed because of health concerns related to Covid-19, we are continuing to promote art and support artists. During the remainder of this year, our popular Square Foot Show and Sale will be presented as a virtual online gallery – a place where our artists can display their work, and our friends and visitors can still enjoy good art, and be comforted by it in these challenging times.
This gallery consists of 74 pieces (one more than last year’s conventional show), and it represents work of amazing variety by 26 artists from Grand Manan, Beaver Harbour, St. Stephen, Saint John, Hampton, Fredericton, Winnipeg, Quebec, Ontario, Maine, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
Introducing a specialized workshop infusing cold wax medium into representational as well as abstracted landscape and seascape painting. We’ll explore alternative tools, mark-making, dry pigments, colour mixing, viscosity, direct/indirect painting and more to give voice to your visual vocabulary.
Reflections is a show with ten abstract paintings made with Mexico’s cochineal dye and oil paint. This body of work aims to communicate the visual sensation of a space in a geometric composition which reflect the identity of the space. Fabiola Martinez is inspired by the old architectural structures around the world and recreates the mist of the Saint John Harbour for atmosphere.
