Here's the Poster for our Summer Show at the Maritime Painted Saltbox held from the end of July 2017 to Labour Day, 2017 . This show featured our latest acrylic paintings and the introduction of Metal Art, our images on metal using a process called dye sublimation.

In the Summer of 2016 we introduced outdoor art for our summer show entitled Out the Door Art. We created over 30   acrylic paintings on plywood which we treated to be able to withstand the weather and  to be displayed  outside, during the warmer months, rain or shine.   We displayed the art on easels and on the sides of gallery, house and studio.  Clients were able to appreciate art in a garden setting.
