Meet the Artists Megan LeForte & Amy Ordoveza

Argyle Fine Art is pleased to be hosting a MEET THE ARTISTS day on Saturday, September 19th, 2pm-4pm with Megan LeForte and Amy Ordoveza and celebrate their new works with us. All Welcomed!

**Megan LeForte‘s show is called “Please Be Seated”, and as you may have guessed,it is themed around favourite chairs or sofas and the connections and comforts we find in these objects over time for a variety of reasons.Curling up in your favourite chair is one of life’s simple pleasures after all, don’t you agree?

**Amy Ordoveza‘s show will make you look twice – and seeing is believing! Her masterful gouache and oil paintings are often mistaken as actual three-dimensional sculptures when viewed online, photographs, or prints,but each image is carefully painted.

Encaustic workshop with Lynn Rotin BFA BA on Sunday, October 18

Encaustic workshop with Lynn Rotin BFA BA

Come spend a day having fun experimenting with the encaustic painting technique. What is encaustic? Simply put, it’s painting with melted beeswax coloured with pigment. An ancient technique, it goes back to the Greeks who caulked and decorated their boats with it.

I have taught the encaustic painting method to almost 300 people including high school students, artists (rug hookers, jewellers, weavers, painters etc) as well as many non-artists. Encaustic is fun and forgiving and no previous art experience is necessary.

You will have one 8×8″ followed by two 10×10″ wooden supports to paint on. All waxes will be supplied. I have tools and brushes to work with as well.

Date: Sunday October 18

Cost: $175 + $50 for materials

Location: 726 West Pennant Road (a half hour from the Armdale Rotary, five minutes from the corner store). 902-346-2018

Plus an organic, vegetarian lunch eaten on the deck (if the weather permits) amongst the fading perennial beds.

Full payment upon registration by cheque (full address below) or e-transfer (

***Full refund if cancellation is two weeks before the workshop (by October 4)

For registration please email me at or call 902-346-2018

William Rogers solo exhibition “Time to Reflect, Recent Figures” at Art Lab Studios & Gallery

Bill Rogers has been painting portraits since he was eighteen. He’s a gifted master of capturing the inner light of his subjects and making their expressions universal. They are not just portraits to interest family. They are portraits of universal appeal. A reflection of distinction. He captures the working man, the student and the ordinary with such devotion and insight.

Art Lab is proud to be able to mount Bill’s portrait work at Art Lab. He’s deserving of exhibitions in galleries of distinction around the world.

Please come to Art Lab and take time to admire and study this special collection and reflect on the lives portrayed. If you’re a collector of fine art adding a Bill Rogers portrait to your collection of art work is important. If you’re not a collector perhaps this is the time to start.
