Paint the Town 25 ​Virtual Edition, August 15-17.


Paint the Town 25 Virtual Edition, August 15-17.

Paint the Town, Nova Scotia’s premiere plein air-inspired event, celebrates 25 incredible years! This year we’ve had no choice but to re-imagine the much-loved event, so we’re honouring Annapolis Region Community Arts Council’s Paint the Town annual event in a very special way: 25 years, 25 artists, 25 works of art and an online party that lasts 25 days!

How This Year’s Event Will Work

On August 15 and 16, artists will create one piece of art, and share their process along the way via social media posts on Instagram and Facebook. On August 17, it’s the first-ever online Paint the Town auction, and 25 works of art will find new homes with the highest bidders!

THIS YEAR PAINT THE TOWN IS DIFFERENT! Aug.15-17 Annapolis Royal

https://arcac-artsplace.weebly.com/paint-the-town-festival.html


Dear Friends,

I have participated in Paint The Town in Annapolis Royal for the past 23 of its 24 years. It is the major fundraiser for Annapolis Region Arts Council. This area was my prime art community when I lived in Port Lorne and I look forward to doing this fundraiser every year to connect with my artist friends in that area and to support an Arts Council that has done amazing work in such a small community.

THIS YEAR PAINT THE TOWN IS DIFFERENT! For the 25th anniversary, they have invited 25 artists to produce one modestly sized painting over the two days August 15 and 16th, which will be posted on line at p.m. on the 16th. These 25 works will be auctioned online on the 17th. If the buyer is from out of town, the piece will be mailed via Canada Post.

We also work in our venue of choice instead of Annapolis Royal

I WILL BE PAINTING AT MY HOME,

IN MY FRONT GARDEN COURTYARD

40 ERSKINE STREET

DARTMOUTH

AUGUST 15 AND 16TH

9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Besides the one painting for auction, I will be painting some of my larger works on collaged backgrounds which I will make available for Secord Gallery.

I will also have a selection of approximately 30 works on paper available for sale in the house at reduced prices from their original retail sale. These works may be purchased by cash, cheque or e-transfer. if you are entering the house, physical distancing is required as well as wearing a mask.

Artist Statement

This summer, I have been swimming a lot, especially with my daughter Holly, who loves to swim and seems to have the playful, inexhaustible energy of a dolphin in the water. I have always found water beautiful to look at. More and more, I also love the way water feels, and the way it makes me feel calm, grounded and well. Perhaps because I am with Holly swimming so much, and feeling proud of her, and loving her energy, her fun and lovely spirit, I am more fully tuned into gratitude and open to the grace of water, and of life in general.

I have been trying to focus on gratitude whether I am swimming, or taking photos to paint from while hiking or kayaking, experiencing joy in nature, trying to soak it all in, observing the wonderful shapes of the natural world. I feel like I am not alone in a renewed feeling of gratitude to our wonderful province here, especially during the pandemic. Being in nature and visiting more of the beautiful beaches we have so near to us is truly medicinal in troubling times. We are blessed to have such beauty around us. And it is profoundly bittersweet to be in love with our natural surroundings at a time when our planet is warming so quickly, and we are altering and harming nature on so many fronts.

Perhaps, by feeling a deeper connection to nature, we will take its protection more personally, as if it were a much loved family member without whom we would be lost.
