Henk Ykelenstam Exhibit & Sale Continues @ Gallery 18
The exhibit and sale of original works or art by the late Prince Edward Island artist Henk Ykelenstam is continuing at Gallery 18 in New London. The exhibit includes oils, multi-media pieces and graphite sketches. Many of the works in the show have been made available by way of special arrangements with the Ykelenstam estate. Henk Ykelenstam (1929-1992) was an accomplished artist in the super realism style. During his lifetime he exhibited at galleries in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and the Toronto International Art Fair. In addition, he was featured in two separate solo exhibitions at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown. Ykelenstam was also a talented musician and performed with several orchestras across Canada. Gallery 18 is open daily during the summer season.

Each September the Hants County Arts Council and Avon River Heritage Society play host to Paint Avondale, a spirited open air painting event, which takes place along the historic waterfront in Newport Landing.
A part of our successful Artisans in Action series, this event invites the public out to interact with our local artists, while exploring our community.
For the duration of the event the Avon Spirit Shipyard will be converted into a pop-up gallery where participating artists can display and sell their work. A volunteer will be on hand to process sales, with 100% of proceeds going back to the artist.
Artists interested in participating can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (902) 757-1718. $20 fee to participate.
