Nonesuch Art on Paper Awards- international art awards opens in Parrsboro

 

  Main & Station  Presents The Nonesuch Art On Paper Awards

Main & Station Ltd, an art residency centre located at 168 Main Street in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, will be hosting a major International art award and exhibition.  Between  August 20th and September 10th  2016.

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

 Lawrence Nicoll - Partridge Island
PARRSBORO, NSLAWRENCE NICOLL, one of Canada’s best photographers, has established a national reputation for taking stunningly beautiful pictures that shine with the inner life of every landscape or subject that he has chosen to portray. Now, he has come up with a dynamite workshop for the Parrsboro Creative Cultural Campus 2016 season in which he offers an opportunity to share his photographic knowledge. It’s called “Composition & The Art of Seeing” or “Take your Pictures from ‘ok’ to ‘WOW. In the morning session, Nicoll is offering all kinds of valuable photography tips with topics like: Rule of Thirds, Foreground Interest, Selective Focus, Framing, Symmetry & Patterns, Dynamic lines & Guiding Shapes, and Using Light as a Tool. Then, after a tasty lunch served by the genteel folk at Ottawa House, the workshop moves outside to a photo shoot with a 1928 bright red Nash “Rum Runner” and a mysterious gentlemen in a black zoot suit. This all happens on a breathtaking location right on the shores of the Bay of Fundy.Lawrence Nicoll’s travels have taken him across Canada, the American SW, Western Australia and the Scottish Highlands. He now makes his permanent home in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, spending his time seeking out the hidden beauty of Atlantic Canada. Never ceasing to be amazed at the magnificence that nature presents us, he hopes his work will allow people to share his appreciation of the natural world that surrounds us.

Do you need a fancy camera for this course? Not according to Lawrence Nicoll. All you need is just a love for taking pictures. Class size is limited, so best to book now. There still some places left, and the price is right – $75.00

Presented by OTTAWA HOUSE MUSEUM in partnership with Parrsboro Creative.

full-colour book of all the works in the NAOPA finalist exhibitions

We are preparing to put in our order with the printers for a full-colour book cataloguing all the works in the NAOPA finalist exhibitions. Photographs and short descriptions of each work will be included.
The catalogue could be printed in various formats but the nicest option we have looked at is a 64-page ‘perfect bound’ booklet.  These books are expensive to print and we do not want to order boxloads if there is no interest.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to order one or more of the perfect bound books so that we can decide how many to print. The current price is $50 CAD + tax and shipping.
To give you some idea of how it will look, the front cover and a few of the draft pages are attached as a pdf.
i look forward to hearing from you.
best regards,
judith bauer

Joy has a been long time friend of the Art Lab artists and a huge supporter of the creative work being done in Parrsboro, whether it’s music, theatre or art. We’re so proud to have this prolific, skilled and genuinely good person as part of our world. Please join us Friday for this very special opening of a very special artist.
Joy Laking - Parrboro Mains Street with Anchor

Joy Laking is a Nova Scotian artist living and working in Portapique, NS.

Artist’s Statement
Joy loves to paint. For forty-four years she has painted Nova Scotia and captured her view of the world on watercolour paper and in oil and acrylics. She is inspired by all of  the beauty that is Nova Scotia

Joy’s studio paintings are developed from on location paintings, photos and actual objects and flowers. Sometimes an idea is thought about for a number of years before a painting is started. The actual painting may take several weeks. In all cases the reality in the painting is Joy’s. She happily changes or moves objects within a painting.  Strong compositions and a wide range of tonal values are a constant in all of Joy’s paintings.  Her watercolours make full use of the white of the paper and her oils and acrylics are full of rich colours. All of Joy’s paintings “sing”.
In addition to her studio paintings and when ever possible Joy paints on location. It is an exhilarating challenge to set out, find a subject and complete an entire painting in four to seven hours. These paintings are loose, spontaneous and depict the tides, the lighting and the moment. Besides painting on location throughout the Maritimes, Joy loves the landscape and history of England, Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Japan and all of South America. In 2016, Joy painted in Ghana, Africa.
