Art 1274 Hollis Gallery “The Lighthouse Project” Opening Reception June 29

To celebrate Canada 150,  we’re focusing on Nova Scotia’s iconic lighthouses with an exhibit of 150 paintings, woodturning, pottery, glassworks and jewelry.

The majority of the works in the exhibit are 7-inch by 5-inch paintings displayed en masse, with three-dimensional pieces arrayed around the 1274 Hollis Street gallery. Gallery painters’ styles range from abstract to hyper-realism in media including watercolour, acrylic, oil and encaustic, while 3-D work includes raku pottery and other ceramics, wire, beadwork and glass jewelry, fused and flame-turned glass and a variety of wood work.

The exhibit opens June 29, from 6 to 8 p.m., and will run throughout July.
