Past Shows



Beverley McInnes

February 2017

Rustworks is about seeing something beautiful in the discard, giving new life to what has been broken and cast out and in seeing worth in what has been deemed worthless.  Working in different sculptural material and experimenting with assemblage and collage Beverley discovers rust and its    limitless possibilities.


Colour Alchemy

Susan Lilley

January 2017

Colour Alchemy is a collection of original abstract artwork featuring hand-dyed textiles assembled using traditional quilting techniques. The work is primarily concerned with conveying emotion through explorations of colour and light.

For the most part, the pieces are made of repurposed white cotton bed sheets. Colour was added using a variety of techniques, including dyeing, bleaching, painting, printing, stitching and use of found objects.


My Home Place

Tom Alway and Peter Blais, Petite Riviere

December 2016

At the Maritime Painted Saltbox Gallery, artists Tom Alway and Peter Blais have created a showcase for their contemporary art that is inclusive, never highbrow, and seeks above all to entertain and delight.

“We bring to this exhibit at the library all the fun, colour and joyfulness we have been exhibiting at our gallery for 18 seasons on the South Shore.”


Friends by Nature  

Faye Walters-Mossman and Janet Rimmington

November 2016

Faye Walters-Mossman and Janet Rimmington have been friends for more than 20 years. Through those years, they have travelled together through the joys and trials of marriage, mothering (they each have two children) and community involvement. They have been a support for each other in good times and tough times – the way friends do.

Janet & Faye share a profound appreciation for the natural landscape and the spectacular light in this lovely corner of Lunenburg County. This provides a seemingly inexhaustible inspiration for creative expression for both of these girls.
