FREE ADMISSION
Wednesday – Saturday: 11am – 4pm

Gerry Collins is a ceramics artist based in Moncton NB who’s exhibition Unwinding Evolution explores the pottery vessel as a story-telling device for the development of the human species. In this Exhibition Gerry Collins’ melds her background as a Zoologist with her practice with clay. Collins uses the form of the amphora vessel “as a metaphor for the human body”….”more than any other vessel, the amphora is associated with travel and with the transportation of precious fluids.” Anthropologically the clay vessel is a distinct marker of daily human life. Ceramic objects evolve in the human hand both in the moment of making and in their use over time. Designs shaped by our needs and influenced by trade become as distinct as our own immensely complex evolution.

Unwinding Evolution will be hosted at The Mary E. Black Gallery from July 16 – August 30, 2020. The Mary E. Black has reopened with new hours from 11-4 Wednesday to Saturday. Follow us on our Facebook, Instagram and twitter for updates and announcements related to programming and scheduling.

Thomas Rand’s “Glimpses of Nova Scotia” Opening Reception this Saturday at The Ice House Gallery

Join us in celebration for the opening night of Thomas Rand’s Nova Scotia Watercolours!
Thomas Rand’s Glimpses of Nova Scotia”
Opening Reception
Saturday, July 11, 2020 at 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
The Ice House Gallery
Grace Jollymore Joyce Arts Centre
31 Creamery Road, Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia

I was born and grew up in Bermuda but now live permanently in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After a 28 year career as a professor of Biology, I turned my passion to painting in watercolour. My paintings are largely landscapes and/or waterscapes. My subjects include Bermuda scenes, Vermont farmsteads, lakes and rivers, and Nova Scotian marsh-lands, flood plains, and lakes. I also love painting Margaree River, and other Cape Breton scenes. In all my paintings, I attempt to capture the essence of the environment, especially in creating the energy and mood of the subject.” -TR
