HIGH NOON at NOON: One last piece and a ROUND-UP!

Well, the HIGH NOON at NOON was a bit inconsistent this July, ,but nevertheless great art found great new homes, so mission accomplished! We have one last HIGH NOON at NOON painting on offer today, which features the very textural, sculptural paintings of Jennifer Harrison. 


Today's HIGH NOON at NOON is called "Four Brick Houses" and measures 18" x 24", oil on canvas by Jennifer Harrison. Jennifer moved to Nova Scotia a few years ago from Ontario after falling in love with the province on a brief trip to Lunenburg! We're delighted she did, as we enjoy her artwork so much in our gallery.  This work was painted in 2008 and has been a favourite for many people throughout it's years. 

 Until end of day tomorrow ,  this work is priced at $895. After that time, it will go back to it's original price of $1200


 

Because we were late posting many of our HIGH NOON at NOON features, as well as plagued by various storm systems and power outages for many of clients...we are offering the below remaining HIGH NOON at NOON pieces at the HIGH NOON price until end of day tomorrow as well. Take a look through and find a special piece at a special PRICE.

Peacock by Gregg Tracey HIGH NOON PRICE: $575 (original price $850)
Fuller Terrace by Andy MacDonald HIGH NOON Price: $350 (original $500)
Blue Jay Landing by Kat Serediuk HIGH NOON Price $195 (original price $385)

HIGH NOON at NOON #11- Colleen MacIsaac

"Dear Anita..."

(That's a little inside joke going out to a great supporter of our gallery who has noticed we've fallen behind on our HIGH NOON at NOON features...but also understands why! :-)  Thank goodness!)

It's been a busy few days at the gallery, preparing for the DOWNTOWN ARTWALK, which happened last night despite the rain we saw about 100 people or more out enjoying over 25 art galleries and shops. We also opened up a new show, CANADIANA -come and see it!

Anyway...without further adieu ...our HIGH NOON at NOON..but actually far far later....

WELCOME TO OUR  continuing  bi-yearly event, HIGH NOON at NOON where we feature ONE piece of art at HIGH NOON that is priced at a special price but for just 24 hours! The works selected for these days, are works that the gallery and artist that created them feel is some of their best works...but haven't found a home yet. We'd like to introduce you to these works and hope that some of them find a home with you.


Our HIGH NOON feature is an original ink and watercolour piece by Colleen MacIssac. This work was from a group show called Urban Legends that  we hosted a few years ago now, waaaay back in 2009. This piece is called "Bloody Mary" and measures 15" x 11.5" and is simply framed in a black frame.  It makes everyone smile...while illustrating this popular urban myth.

 Until HIGH NOON on Sunday, July 20th, this work is priced at $150.  After that time, it will go back to it's original price of $300.

HIGH NOON at NOON #4-Bryanna Chapeskie

  WELCOME TO OUR  continuing  bi-yearly event, HIGH NOON at NOON where we feature ONE piece of art at HIGH NOON that is priced at a special price but for just 24 hours! The works selected for these days, are works that the gallery and artist that created them feel is some of their best works...but haven't found a home yet. We'd like to introduce you to these works and hope that some of them find a home with you.

Today's HIGH NOON featured work is by artist Bryanna Chapeskie and is called "Barefoot Ballet II", measures 12" x 12" and is watercolour on paper. It's a childhood dream of a piece, harkening to a time less complicated. Depending on your age dear reader, it reminds me of the textural/puppet/drawings/photography from the Little Golden Books of the past, where the characters were very three dimensional and almost lept from the pages of the books. This work has so much narrative- awaiting you to tell the fairytale it evokes in your own words. This piece is great for anyone that appreciates fine illustration, watercolour, papercraft and is a child at heart!

Until tomorrow at HIGH NOON, this work is priced at $175.   After that time, it will go back to it's original price of $300.

HIGH NOON at NOON #3-MARK BRENNAN ( a bit earlier today to make up for lost power during Tropical Storm Arthur)

  WELCOME TO OUR  continuing  bi-yearly event, HIGH NOON at NOON where we feature ONE piece of art at HIGH NOON that is priced at a special price but for just 24 hours! The works selected for these days, are works that the gallery and artist that created them feel is some of their best works...but haven't found a home yet. We'd like to introduce you to these works and hope that some of them find a home with you.

Today's HIGH NOON featured work is by artist Mark Brennan and is called "The Remote Cabin, Tipover Lake;  Cape Breton Highlands National Park.This work measures 11 3/4" x 8 7/8" Oil on Board,  as was painted in 2010.It is framed in a simple black frame and is ready for hanging.   

It's a very rare scene, as Mark Brennan almost never includes any signs of human inhabitants in his paintings. This is an actual cabin located in the Highlands of Cape Breton, where Mark has spent time painting and enjoying the great outdoors. This painting is very colourful and also reminds each of us how important it is to "get away from it all", for just a little while. Do you have a special place you visit to escape and retreat?

SOLD

Until tomorrow at HIGH NOON, this work is priced at $350.   After that time, it will go back to it's original price of $450


PS- Mark Brennan will be launching a solo show of very exciting works at Argyle Fine Art this November. Stay tuned for details!
