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.

PAINT PEGGY’S COVE  2021 DATES: JULY 10, 11 & 12

It is no wonder that so many artists live and work along the coast of Nova Scotia where they derive inspiration and rich subject material for their art.

This year’s fun three-day event highlights the beauty of the shorelines, towns, fishing villages, and heritage of Peggy’s Cove. Artists from several provinces will be bringing brushes, oils, watercolours, pastels, pencils and setting up on the rocks, wharfs and park areas to create new works inspired by this unique Nova Scotian community.

Soak up the process and fall in love with a painting! This is an opportunity to watch artists at work and to talk to them about the artistic process.


Artists will be on site all three days: Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of July, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.; and Monday 12th between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Once complete, each day’s works, as well as studio pieces by the same artists, will be on view and for sale in a large Mongolian yurt (round tent) located a short walk from the Peggy’s Cove Information Centre

The children’s art tent located next to the yurt in Peggy’s Cove will offer free creative activities.
