ONGOING and UPCOMING


April

Want to Fall in Love with ART? Go on a Blind Date with Art at Argyle Fine Art, beginning Wednesday, March 25th you can do just that!


 Borrowing from a marketing idea from book stores, (where they wrap the books in brown paper so as to not judge a book by it's cover) ...we're going to do a similar thing with a selection of works at the gallery. All works will be concealed in brown paper with only written descriptions and hints as to what may be inside. 

The price for each surprise work is just $35 -$75 ( all works valued at $175 or more!). All works are original works and there will only be 12 works available. Once they are gone, they're gone. Choose wisely and fall in love with ART!

ON NOW in the gallery! NEW WORKS BY JAN DAVISON. Here is the direct link to the show. Once you are there, click on each image to see the full image and details for each, including sizes and prices. LINK: https://www.flickr.com/photos/62710153@N03/sets/72157651723279435/

MAY

OPEN CITY in HALIFAX is on MAY 9th!  So of course, we're planning lots of fun and new works and artists to meet!

OPENING SATURDAY, MAY 9th, 1:30-3:30pm.  Artist Gary Staple creates works of art out of wood.  We are delighted to be presenting this unique show.

Cherry Blossom Tea Case by Gary Staple
On the walls, also opening on May 9th,  we'll be featuring a selection of the latest works by emerging artist Craig Baltzer in his series called "Chasing the Light". Craig's work has being getting noticed around town- specifically at the most recent ART BATTLES in Halifax and at our Pre-Shrunk show this year, where all his pieces sold in one night! An artist to watch for sure!!



And as if that wasn't enough, we're also going to have artist Kim Danio on hand, with her artful creations that she  makes out of SHOES and BOOTS!  Because the theme of OPEN CITY this year is to celebrate this weather without ice storms, Kim is creating a special series of works that rejoice in the food trucks of HRM!  The first food truck known to us all, was BUD THE SPUD, so it only seemed natural for her to include this one. See what other tricks she has in store for us and see how she makes these wonderful creations. There are sure to be some Mommy and Baby themed animals too..just in time for Mother's Day!
