Now and Then at The Craig Gallery

Hello friends!

We miss seeing you all at The Craig Gallery, but we’re so glad we’re able to continue to provide you with some fine local art to enjoy. We’re currently hoping to be able to open our doors once again in the nearish future, though we currently have not determined a date. Stay tuned for updates on the situation.

In the month of June we welcome Taiya Barss with her retrospective, though we’re unable to host an opening reception, you’ll be able to enjoy the show on our website and hopefully in person eventually! Best to you all.

“Now and Then

A Retrospective”

at The Craig Gallery

June 10 – July 5

Now and Then

Artist’s Statement

I have never dated my work. Mainly because the final, finished date is often uncertain. I usually work on several paintings at once, working on one, then putting it away and working on another. I have been sure one was done, hung it on my wall for one year, or three, then decided it wasn’t quite right, something doesn’t work. So, I would haul it down and work on it again until I’m satisfied.

There is one, the oldest work here ,”Dark of the Moon”, which has 1964 written on the back.. The rest move from then to now.

I move from earthy, monochromatic tones to bright colour, without a conscious , thoughtful direction. It just happens, and may reflect whether my life is filled with more darkness than light at the time, or the opposite. Or perhaps I just wanted a change in palette, to burst out or reflect inwards.

I love words, and a phrase, like “Snail Mail” will stick in my head and produce an image. “Pare!”, an imperative command, and a play on “pear”, words and fruit both there . Grammatical errors, “Split Infinitive”, or “Dangling Paticiple” give rise to small abstracts.

A black crow is a strong shape to work with, jumping fish elegant and graceful. A dragonfly flits through my mind, darting this way and that., until I stop the flight and put her in a frame.

I send these ideas out, from my mind to my hand , hoping to connect with the person who stands in front of my work and sees what I offer them. ” –Taiya Barss

Unfortunately, and due to the world wide pandemic we have had to cancel our historic approach to PIPAF for this year, to both protect the artists and the community.
The 2020 Artists juried into the now cancelled event have all agreed to be a part of this wonderful new initiative. We will be asking them to paint “en plein aire” from within their world of isolation, to reflect in their art the conditions and world that they are experiencing in this new world of Covid -19
          • The artists and the general public will be able to follow the activity and productivity of each artist on line and in real time.
          • The art work created will be exhibited on line and judged by master artist Tom Forrestall C.M., O.N.S., B.F.A., LLD, RCA.
          • The art work will be for sale allowing you to collect a piece of the snapshot of North American at this time of change.\

SATURDAY, MAY 23rd, $30

The first part of the class is from 1pm-2pm and then following up later that evening 7pm-8pm.

VIA ZOOM (we can help you set this up if you are unfamiliar with it)

This workshop will help you learn how to see and draw from observation. In April, Briana taught her first ZOOM class with a focus on contour drawings and values. Now she’s going to speak to composition and form. You can take this class even if you didn’t take the previous class- a refresher will be provided to all that sign up with some guidance of the stages of observational drawing thus far. You only need some paper, a pencil and an ink pen should you wish, to participate. The workshop will be recorded for you to review later, should you require it.

Learning to Draw YOUR HOME with Craig Baltzer

SATURDAY, MAY 30th, $30

The first part of the class is from 1pm-2pm and then following up later that evening 7pm-8pm.

VIA ZOOM (we can help you set this up if you are unfamiliar with it)

NO PREVIOUS experience required! Get ready to draw your home, one line at a time. Artist Craig Baltzer will teach you how to draw your very own home! The first part of the workshop he wil do a number of demos, speak about your tools of the trade (pencils and paper and more) and how to begin! There will be lots of time to ask questions and get assistance throughout the day. Then we will all come together again from 7pm-8pm and continue with our work or share what we accomplished thus far. The workshop will be recorded for you to review later should you require it.


SUNDAY, JUNE 21st, $50 with supplies

($40 if you choose to use your own supplies. If you choose this option, please request a full materials list asap so you are prepared)

The first part of the class is from 1pm-2pm and then following up later that evening 7pm-8pm.

VIA ZOOM (we can help you set this up if you are unfamiliar with it)

This workshop was originally planned to take place in person, however we are assuming that we will have to social distance at this time, so we are taking this class online. If we are allowed to host in person at the gallery, we will try to accommodate all that sign up for either online or in person.

The first part of the workshop will include a discussion by Sharon and demo(s) regarding using oil paint as well as getting the participants to begin mixing colours and getting the beginning of a painting underway. Then we will all come together again from 7pm-8pm and continue with our work or share what we have done and ask further questions. Sharon will provide additional guidance and resources for future projects and exercises you may want to try. The entire workshop will be recorded for your future review should you require it.


You will be painting either a rabbit or a fox. Source photos will be provided prior to the class via email. Supply packages to do the workshop will be available for pick-up for the class on either Monday( June 15) or Wednesday (June 17th) from the gallery via a contactless pick-up between 10am-4pm. If that is not possible, other arrangements and delivery options can be arranged. If you live outside HRM, supplies could be mailed or couriered for an additional fee.
