We are experiencing great numbers of visitors to the gallery this summer and we have had good sales for many of our exhibiting artists. The Promenade Waterfront Village is drawing the tourists and locals to this exciting destination which now offers a variety of great shops and food outlets. The ongoing evening entertainment has been a huge draw as well and with our gallery's extended hours we see many people who are discovering for the first time Bathurst's artistic community.
We have a variety of art supplies for sale at the gallery and specialize in unusual canvasses, in specialty sizes and formats. The piece above, "Glow Mandala" is made of 4 tri-angles which can be spaced to create unusual effects, spaced slightly apart such as this is, or hung separately as 4 triangles, or grouped in two squares. The size of this is 34 x 34 ". Smaller versions are available. Come in and see if we don't twig your imagination with the variety of canvass supports that we are carrying. We can certainly order as well.
Martha Robinson welcomed 7 students to her course yesterday! The weather was blustery so demos and instruction began indoors but as luck would have it the sun broke through for the afternoon and plein air painting began in the Promenade Waterfront Village under the canopy of the tower.
The weather for the rest of the week looks great so we are looking forward to going to some beautiful painting experiences at various sites around Bathurst.
Don't forget the Little Kids Art Camp next week - ages 5 - 9! Every morning from 9 - 12 with a yoga session included. For more information call Adrienne at 548-2160.
