“Ramp It Up!” Wrap Up


Our 3rd biennial “Ramp It Up!” fundraiser in support of Lunenburg’s Second Story Women’s Centre has been an incredible success! Our School was unsure of how the COVID-19 restrictions, which required us to host a “virtual” event, would effect this year’s fundraiser. We are truly bowled-over by our community’s engagement and support.

Our goal was set at $4500.00, and thanks to the very generous community support we were able to exceed this goal and raise over $5000.00. 100% of the proceeds go to the Second Story Women’s Centre. We thank all of the bowl purchasers and donors!

We are truly grateful for all of our volunteers and artisans who made this event possible. A special “Thank You” to Douglas Bamford who led this effort, and who enlisted others to assist him in creating over 100 bowls. We are also grateful to the many local Artists who contributed their handsomely decorated pieces, and to our students who made some of our beautiful bowls. Lastly, a big “Thank You” to The Pottery Supply House of Oakville, Ontario, for its generous donation of clay.

Our School is incredibly proud to be able to provide this assistance to Second Story Women’s Centre, especially in these COVID-19 times, and we look forward to an in-person “Ramp It Up!” in 2023.

DUALITY Ted Coldwell – JULY 1 – AUGUST 29 ViewPoint Gallery ~a fine art photography show

DUALITY is my first show of the year – and it’s special! It’s TWO shows under the same name. DUALITY explores my abstract/conceptual work in July and features my studio art in August.

DUALITY presents where I’ve been and points in the directions I’m going – whether it’s into the world to create abstract images out of details or into the studio to create an image on an empty table or a blank monitor.

An Opening Reception is planned for SUNDAY, JULY 4 at 2:00 p.m.

I would love to see you there!

ViewPoint Gallery ~ A Solo Exhibition by Anne Bastedo

A Solo Exhibition by Anne Bastedo

April 22 -June 27, 2021

This exhibit features photos taken on a photo trip to Havana, Santieras and Trinidad, Cuba. Many people have holidayed in Cuba and returned with standard holiday shots. Instead, in this show I share what I captured of the people and culture of this wonderful country.

A video interview with Anne Bastedo about the exhibition is now available for viewing online.

A recent article about ViewPoint Gallery was published in The Bedford Wire.

Anne Bastedo will be staffing the gallery on the following dates: June 19, 25 and 27th, and will be happy to discuss her exhibition in person with any who care to visit on those dates.
