Debra Kuzyk and Ray Mackie have been making pottery together for close to 30 years. This exhibition will showcase works made together, as well made solo by each. The two artists collaborate by passing the work back and forth between them to produce a single unique piece of work, which transcends what either could achieve independently. Ray is the potter and kiln manager, and Debra is the decorator and sculptor.

Visual Voice Fine Art TWO Exciting Solo Shows and FREE Artist TALK on Jun 23


Visual Voice Fine Art is proud to reopen with two exciting solo shows: ‘Creatures from Somewhere’ sculptures by Nancy Roberts AND ‘The Turning Point’ paintings by Paulette Melanson.
The pandemic and social issues affect us all in different ways, from escapism to wanting to take control of our future. This is made evident in this exhibit were both artists had opposite reactions. Despite their different approaches, the resulting combined show is visually appealing and cohesive.

Paulette Melanson wants for things to change for the better and her aim with this new body of work was to inspire hope, encourage optimism and empower change. ‘The Turning Point’ is her first all abstract solo, bright, colorful, and as optimistic and happy as the artist intended.

Nancy Roberts lost her inspiration and will to create as galleries closed and exhibits cancelled during Covid. Forced to continue she began by gripping the clay and playing with her medium, which gave rise to creatures that seemed to come alive and were at home in these strange times we are living.
‘Creatures from Somewhere’ is dynamic, playful, and proves that any situation can breathe new life and creativity into us.

Art 1274 Hollis Gallery – Nature’s Treasures Just Outside Our Door

Art 1274 Hollis Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition, featuring paintings by Beverley Kelly with Nature’s Treasures Just Outside our Door!

According to Bev, “A painting brings beauty into the world, and into our homes, ignites our senses, and creates a narrative. It has the power to spark reflection and shared conversations, often transcending barriers”


Bev’s work is inspired by post-impressionism masters, Van Gogh and Cezanne, and she uses a subjective approach to painting, choosing symbolic colours, bold gestural strokes, and optical effects to evoke an emotional response.



We’d love for you to drop by the Gallery on Hollis Street or check out our website – and get yourself some art.

Art 1274 Hollis Gallery, Halifax’s premiere Artists’ Co-op, features over 20 local artists and artisans. Fine art and fine craft with dynamic new work of original paintings, jewellery, pottery, ceramic art, folk art, rug hooking, fibre art and upcycled metal art.

“Splendid Isolation” Eva McCauley extended to July 31st at ARTSPLACE Gallery ~ NOW OPEN to the public!

Splendid Isolation
Eva McCauley

April 24 – July 31st, 2021

ARTSPLACE Gallery, Annapolis Royal, NS

Splendid Isolation is a series of new oil paintings exploring themes of isolation, uncertainty, and transience during the strange and surreal time of a global pandemic.

The paintings are mostly night scenes, both urban and rural, and inhabited by solitary figures that are dissolving, shifting, and not very tangible. Even the ground is shifting beneath their feet. They inhabit places that McCauley has been in the past. There is a loose narrative being created in the paintings, unresolved and open-ended. The narrative is deliberately unresolved, to convey the feeling of uncertainty and unpredictability, with everything in flux. The paintings are night paintings – a liminal and solitary time.

Supported by the Waterloo Regional Arts Fund,

and the Canada Council for the Arts.
