Bob Hainstock: Stubborn Art
Opening this Saturday, July 13th 2-4
July 13th – August 4th
Please join us tomorrow, Saturday, July 13th from 2-4 for the opening of “Stubborn Art” The artist will be in attendance and there will be light, local refreshment. It is also our BIRTHDAY! Saturday marks 15 years for HARVEST GALLERY! We are so grateful to our artists whose talent gives us depth – whose work makes us “a must see” gallery and to our customers who continue to support art in Nova Scotia! Perhaps the event should be titled “Stubborn Art Gallery”! To mark the occasion we’re having cake!
Stubborn Art is mainly about an artist’s work that in hindsight seemed almost reluctant to come into two-dimensional existence; about recovering successful work from old prints that were originally labelled as failures; about successful landscape art emerging with strength of colour and light, evoking that special Fundy region character. The show, perhaps, could also be titled, “Stubborn Artist” as he has created an estimated 400-500 printmaking plates over his career, and each plate has had the usual share of stubborn prints. This is a gallery story with many happy endings.
