Visual Voice Fine Art Gallery presents New artworks by Bob Hainstock & Spanish summer classes

Visual Voice Fine Art is proud to showcase A New Perspective a solo art exhibit with new artworks by Bob Hainstock.
Since graduating from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design 24 years ago, the artist has lived and maintained his studio on the southern edge of the province’s unique North Mountain, that 100 kilometre long ridge of struggling farmland and forest that separates the powerful Bay of Fundy from the fertile and productive Annapolis Valley. His perch sits more than 700 feet above a Valley floor of constantly changing textures and colors, which gives Hainstock a distinct aerial perspective of shifting pattern and shadow depending of the time of day and season. Skies look bigger from that place and there’s always a panoramic glimpse of distant weather systems approaching. Everything is simplified with the higher perspective; specially in the abstracted light patterns of nighttime on farms, towns and villages – nearly 35,000 people and their homes will almost disappear with the coming of morning light. And if the artist needs a dramatic change of visual language, a brisk 20 minute walk gives him the alternate colors, temperatures and textures of The Fundy.

See the exhibit from June 13th to July 11th at our regular gallery hours: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12:30 to 5:00 pm.

There will be NO opening reception for this show. COVID-19 measures in effect.

2020 Paint Lunenburg Art Festival Cancelled

The Lunenburg Art Society regrets to announce that this year’s plein air event – our 20th – is cancelled, due to the difficulties of planning in isolation, and uncertainties of when we can freely and safely gather together.

But good times will come again. Then we will welcome plein air painters back to paint Lunenburg.

At Art Lab we’ve not cancelled any of our courses beyond the end of June. So we will encourage you to sign up for any of our courses. We’ll be limiting the numbers of students in order to maintain social distancing protocols. IF we have to cancel a full refund will be given. We may also move some courses to an on line course if necessary and any student signed up for the onsite course will have preference to move to the on line format if that’s their wish.
