The Entomologist

Miniature artist Damien Webb and watercolour artist Michelle St-Onge will transform the lower gallery into a room of bugs under domes, in jars, boxes and terrariums made from paper and reclaimed objects. The “sky” above will be filled with fireflies. Catch them if you can!

 

Insecticide

Insecticide

Insecticide explores our human interactions with insects. We are both dependent upon and destructive of each other and our environment. Gouache paintings depicting the collision of humans and insects will illuminate some of these ideas. It’s the bees knees, the fly in the ointment, it’s a bug’s life!

Where I Live

Where I Live

This new body of work represents how I see my home; the places and spaces in which I walk. I’ve often found the strongest compositions to be bourn from the unpredictable and the decisive moment.

I majored in photography at NSCADU and have been using my photographs as my inspiration for this collection of images. I must admit, my first love is drawing and so I’ve been exploring the concepts of combining photography with drawing along with watercolour to give a unique and graphic quality.

Halifax and Dartmouth are wonderful places to explore; full of old and new examples of architecture all blended together in one landscape. Moody skies, windy streets that lead from one Maritime treasure to another keep my perspective fresh and full of enthusiasm.

Hiraeth

Hiraeth

“Hiraeth”, is an exhibition of new paintings by Megan LeForte and Caitlin McGuire. Hiraeth is a Welsh concept defined as, “a homesickness for a home you cannot return to, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for the lost places of your past.” Both are approaching the concept from different perspectives.
