COMMON GROUND: still life paintings by Stuart Melanson, George Spencer and Chris Wallace
Argyle Fine Art

Join us for an extraordinary collection of paintings that pull together the common ground between three distinct artists; Chris Wallace, George Spencer and Stuart Melanson. Each approaching the subject of still life with completely unique backgrounds, and each achieving a completely unique effect. Stuart Melanson using Acrylics, George Spencer using oils and Chris Wallace using egg tempera - all three mediums have resulted in a beautifully well-rounded exhibition. This is the first show of its kind here at Argyle Fine Art, and we hope you’ll be here to share in the fun!

OPENING RECEPTION is FRIDAY, APRIL 19th from 7-9
and the show continues until May 4th.

For more information, contact Argyle Fine Art at 902.425.9456

Double Opening: Featuring JANE ROVERS and BRYANNA CHAPESKIE!!

It's a double hitter in our lower gallery with the opening of these two fantastically talented artists, Bryanna Chapeskie and Jane Rovers. Jane brings her beautifully designed skyscapes built for daydreamers and romantics. Her contemporary digital media prints manage to be both punchy and tranquil all at once. With Bryanna you’ll find a series of layered papercraft built into beautiful, theatrical animal scenes, and they’re alive with colour and playfulnes.
