Call to Artists – Long Winter Nights!

It’s that time of year again – the temperature has begun to drop, along with the first few leaves, and in less than a month we once again take over the gallery and upper studio at the Bread Gallery for our annual members showcase.

As always visual artists can submit up to 6 pieces and those presenting sculpture, pottery, carvings, jewellery etc. may each have at least 2 shelves (approximately 1′ x 3′) or up to 6 plinths to create a display. If you are a mixed media artist we will do our best to accommodate. Please don’t hesitate if you have any questions, we do our best to ensure that all of our members are able to contribute to the showcase on some level.

The cost to participate is $25 per member (you must be a current member of Avon River Artsto participate) and the Bread Gallery retains a 35% commission on all sales. Drop off for artwork is scheduled for Sunday October 27th between noon and 3pm and take down is between 3pm and 4pm on December 29th.

Lunenburg School of the Arts Fall 2019 Workshops

Lunenburg School of the Arts
Fall 2019 Workshops

Lunenburg School of the Arts is pleased to present its Fall 2019 list of workshops and instructors.

The School is located at 6 Prince Street (at the corner of Montague) in a historic two-storey building in the heart of Old Town Lunenburg. The building was originally built to house Lunenburg Motors in 1933. After other incarnations the building was renovated in 2014 to house our School.

“Our School’s schedule for this fall is exciting and provides a variety of courses which are being lead by a solid group of instructors”, says LSA Volunteer Chair, Wilfred P. Moore. Celebrated water colourist, Tom Ward, of Mahone Bay, returns for a 10-weeks Monday evening session, ‘The Art of Watercolour’; artist and design professional, Michael Peters, will teach a life drawing workshop on Tuesday evenings, ‘That’s Life: Figure Drawing’, and on Wednesday evenings ‘Take a Line for a Walk: Drawing Fundamentals’. Emma FitzGerald will be back for a one-off Saturday session with ‘A Lunenburg Sketch About’ in October.

Award winning sculptor, Chippie Kennedy, joins us for a ‘3-D Portrait Workshop’, offering students an experience sculpting the head from life, finishing with pouring a plaster cast of your work. Marla Benton’s ceramic workshops this season are ‘Textured Tuesdays: Hand-building’ and ‘Wheelie Wednesday: Bowl Making’. Kara Highfield is back in the ceramics department teaching our Tuesday evening, ‘Wheel Throwing’ and Wednesday evening ‘Clay Club’.

We expect to announce our program for youth next week.

“We have a boat load of great new programs this Fall from Figurative Drawing with Michael Peters to Hand-Building with Marla Benton, we have something for everyone”, says Douglas Bamford, LSA’s Programs Director.
