All are invited to join us in the Avon Spirit Shipyard on Sunday May the 21st from 1pm until 4pm for a special pop-up exhibit of works created by Bruce Pellegrin. The artist will be on site for the duration of the show, providing a few opening remarks on his collection of work created throughout his career.
The Rev. Dr. Victor Bruce Holker Pellegrin, PhD, has been painting since the age of six when he lived in British Columbia. Bruce was trained and mentored by renowned artist Peggy Packard, and inspired by the interpretations of colour and light by artists in the Group of Seven, Emily Carr in later years, and the Canadian Naturalists. Himself a minister in the Anglican church, Bruce’s art is an expression of the sacredness of life and the presence of spirituality in everyday surroundings. Though the vast body of his work has focused on Canadian landscapes, often in the Maritimes, Bruce has done considerable work in iconography and historically themed works. Bruce’s art can be seen in the Atlantic School of Theology, St. Croix and Saint James Churches in Hants County, Christ Church in Dartmouth, and St. John’s Anglican Church and the Cathedral Church of All Saints, in Halifax.
Part of the 19th annual Great Little Art Show.
