Main and Station Ltd-Nonesuch art centre is housed in the newly repurposed 1913 4-story heritage building that once was home to the town’s post office and custom’s house. We will be hosting an exhibition that will show the many ways of creating art on or with paper.  The exhibit will then move to Montreal for another three week period in late September.

The exhibition is the result of a new award created by Main and Station Ltd, “The Nonesuch Art On Paper Awards”. These awards have a value of approximately $20,000 .  The Awards comprise 5 individual awards and include an award for sculptural work as well as a People’s Choice award. The awards consist of Art Residency and an honourarium

The awards attracted submissions from 17 different countries, including Argentina, Australia, Estonia, France, Italy, Germany, Israel, Japan and Spain. Over 35 submissions to the awards came from artists living in the Maritime Provinces.

Over 70 works of art will be on exhibit, including drawings, paintings, prints,  sculpture, paper-crochet hangings, origami, photography, collage and hand-made books. With over 200 artworks entered in the submissions, choosing only 70 works of art for the exhibition was difficult. The quality of work is exceptionally high and the manner of how paper is used in the creative process is extraordinary.

The awards are a privately sponsored initiative to support the arts and no federal, provincial or municipal government assistance was provided.

The awards are financed by Main & Station Ltd of Parrsboro,  Purple Chips/ 7790139 Canada Inc (financial advisors) of Montreal., The Lev Group of companies of Montreal and Parrsboro, Judith S Bauer, Jane Zdansky and John Schwinghamer

Call to Artists: Paint the Deanery Project

Deanery for Janice-page-001

Deanery for Janice-page-002

Hi All my wonderfully creative fellow artists.
I am inviting you to the Deanery Project in Lower Ship Harbour on August 21, 2016 for the Launch of my 100 Wild Islands series in support of Nova Scotia Nature Trust.
I would also like to invite you to come plein aire painting that day in support of the Deanery Project.  Find out more about the project at thedeaneryproject.com
There is no registration fee and you will receive 50 percent of all works sold.  It is rain or shine but there are some wonderfully unique indoor spaces.  On Saturday there is a meet and greet and tour at 3pm and pizza cooked in the outdoor oven.
My show will be up all weekend but the official opening is at 2pm on Sunday.  Creating on Sunday will be from 10-3pm so I will hopefully get a few hours of painting in myself.  Photographers are invited to shoot on Saturday or anytime between now and then so your images will be ready for sale.

Thanks and blessings to all

Janice Stewart
