This section is under construction until we get closer to the opening of the show.

Bob Hainstock has worked in Atlantic and Western Canada as an artist for more than thirty years. He is a full-time printmaker, painter and art instructor. Bob teaches at Acadia University, as well as in many private workshops. His work is represented in galleries throughout Canada and the U.S.. He is primarily concerned with landscape fictions and the potentials of texture and colour. He explores the contrasts and frictions between rural and urban cultures, and between natural and man-made environments. His studio techniques include a full range of painting, mixed media, collagraphs, woodblock, etchings, mono prints and experimental processes involving rust oxidation and hand-made papers from Fundy seaweed.

Kelly Mitchelmore lives in Windsor, Nova Scotia. She paints in both acrylic and oil, using both knife and brush. From bold florals to soft landscapes, Kelly is especially known for her moody coastal scenes and her signature red poppy series. Her Bachelor of Interior Design provided her with a sound foundation in colour theory and perspective. Also a 14 year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, she attributes much of her inspiration and love of painting water and poppies to her naval career. Kelly hosts workshops in person and online, and her home studio gallery is open for showings by appointment. Her work can be found in galleries and collections throughout Canada.
