CCA Exhibit Opening: The Golf Show and Paul Hannon: A Conversation About Ireland

The Inverness County Centre for the Arts is delighted to present the opening of ‘The Golf Show’, a golf themed group exhibition in various media by local and international artists. The opening will take place Thursday, August 4th, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Many of the artists will be present at the opening reception providing a great opportunity to meet them and discuss their work.

Also opening August 4th in the outer gallery is the solo show ‘A Conversation About Ireland’, an exhibit of paintings and drawings by artist Paul Hannon exploring Ireland and his family roots. Hannon recently went to Ireland for the first time and located the lands his Hannon family ancestors lived on and farmed before they had to flee Ireland as a result of the Great Hunger of the 1840’s and early 1850’s. He has done paintings of their lands in Co. Leitrim, Ireland. The lands are incredibly beautiful and later became known as “Yeats” country as W.B. Yeats grew up in that area and wrote extensively about it. Also part of the exhibit are several drawings of Hannon’s family members from his family tree. Though he does not know what they looked like, Hannon knew what they did for a living and painted them in work related poses.

 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.
