ART | Reflections: A Solo Exhibition by Linda Chisholm
October 7 to 29
Solo exhibition of watercolours and oil paintings by Linda Chisholm. Linda knew she wanted to be an artist from the time she was old enough to hold a pencil. Her inspiration comes from the environment around her. Working in oils, she’s spent many hours painting on site: in the forest, on farmland, and at the beach. Her love of the ocean is made obvious by its prominence in many of her paintings.

Painting was my first love. At sixteen I would borrow my father’s pickup, drive to secluded locations and sit on the tailgate as I painted waterfalls and Dutch elm trees.
Now, as I try to come to grips with my mother’s descent into Alzheimer’s disease, I return to the simplicity of that relationship to help me from falling into the darkness of depression that can slowly but steadily squeeze the joy from life. Art is healing; it reminds me there is still beauty in the world. Painting the landscape restores my ability to see it.
Many of the textile pieces in this exhibition were created while passing time with my mother. Her mother taught me to knit and crochet and this kind of work sometimes provides a point of contact for shared memory.
“What are you doing?”
“Mama loved to crochet.”
“Yes she did, I remember.”
A donation of forty percent from the sale of all works during the exhibition will be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia
This fall we Jim Hardiman is conducting four Photography Workshops at HardimanImages. All of these workshops concentrate on delivering skills and knowledge that you can actually use. You will learn with others in a fun environment where the focus is on ensuring that you depart with useful skills that you can put to work right away. We offer workshops on photography and post-processing. The basic photography workshop is designed to give you a foundation on which to build your skills. You will learn about the techniques and then put that learning immediately to use. The post-processing workshops will enable you to use the most useful aspects of the software to “develop” your photos to a point where you achieve the look that you desire.
You can find out more about these Workshops and register at www.hardimanimages.com/
Lightroom® – 22 October 2016
This workshop is designed to make the use of Lightroom® second nature. We will cover the most useful parts of the program to ensure that you understand the powerful cataloguing and editing features. Many people look at Lightroom® as an editor, however, its most powerful feature is its ability to keep track of your photos.
Useful Photoshop® – 29 October 2016
Many features in Photoshop® are meant to be used together and learning about them separately often leads to a steep learning curve with little understanding of how to put the features to work. Much like how learning the alphabet does not teach you how to construct sentences. This Workshop will look at Photoshop® from a “system” perspective to ensure that you can put your learning to work and successfully process your photos. You will feel confident in your learning by the time the Workshop has concluded.
More Useful Photoshop® – 5 November 2016
Understand Photography –12 November 2016
Becoming a better photographer involves many elements. While not an exhaustive list these include a knowledge of your camera, an understanding of light and how it will affect your image, how to get make a correct exposure and the elements of good composition. Additionally, Jim will remain accessible after the Workshop should you have questions on how to do something that you have learned.
10 Days in October programming includes something for everyone: music, dance, theatre, visual arts, fossil walks and gourmet seasonal tastes.
