Art 1274 Hollis Gallery ~Shauna MacLeod’s ceramic exhibition, May Flowers

The month of May brings Flowers to Art 1274 Hollis Gallery with Shauna MacLeod’s ceramic exhibition, May Flowers.

Inspired by a rediscovered love of houseplants, Shauna MacLeod is growing a body of work to create an intimate connection between pot and plant. This winter during Covid isolation, Shauna used growing and propagating plants as a form of self-care and healing. Connecting to the earth, connecting to a living plant, and connecting to the clay. Using primarily Nova Scotia earthenware clay, this body of work consists of planters, plant pot sculptures and vases. Glazed in polychromatic colours and varying in size from tiny little pots to large bouquet vases – there is something for everyone!

Being a co-operative gallery, many of our members jumped on board and followed Shauna’s lead with flowers in many of our other media – We could all use some brightness in our lives and would invite you to check out our website – or our window on Hollis Street 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.

May Flowers”, an exhibition of ceramic work by Shauna MacLeod showing now through May. 1274 Hollis St., Halifax 902-446-4077 .

UPDATE ~ New Dates for “CURVED SPACE” at Studio 21 ~ May 21-June 16

Debra Kuzyk and Ray Mackie have been making pottery together for close to 30 years. This kind of shared production is never easy, but it has also resulted in pottery magic. 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. The upcoming exhibition at Studio 21 will showcase works made together, as well made solo by each.

Defeating COVID-19 Virus ~ Ramp It Up fundraiser scheduled for May 10th to 15th is a virtual event



In accordance with the directives issued yesterday by Dr. Robert Strang, the Chief Medical Officer of Nova Scotia, our School shall be closed to the Public for the next two weeks effective today. We were through a similar situation in 2020, and again, with the smart participation of all we shall get through this together. In the encouraging words of Dr. Strang, “let us lock arms and stay strong.”

As you may know our biennial “Ramp It Up” fundraiser is scheduled for May 10th to 15th. As advertised, it is to be a virtual event, and thus we shall be proceeding with our event to help out Lunenburg’s Second Story Women’s Centre. This sale of ceramic pieces closes on Saturday, May 15th, and we have planned for purchasers to come to our School and pick up their bowls and platters on that day. We will leave that in place for now, but, shall pay close attention to Dr. Strang’s advice and will make any changes that are necessary in order to be absolutely consistent with the directives of our Public Health Authority.

Stay tuned and stay safe!
