A New Gallery for Bear River, Nova Scotia

I’m over-the-moon excited to be a founding member of a new art venture in Bear River. We will call ourselves Bear River Artworks Gallery.

A group of 8 enthusiastic artists have come together to open a gallery/mini arts space in Bear River.

We’ve rented a bright, interesting space for a year. We plunked our money down and celebrated last week with slices of lemon meringue pie. The very next day crowbars and plaster of paris came out and now our beautiful space is being polished and made ready.

A website is on its way; so are gorgeous signs and, of course, works of art from the heart.

We are working towards a mid April opening.

Little did Larry and I or any of the other members know a few months ago, that we would embark on such a venture together. But the timing is right, the enthusiasm is real and there is no time like the present for trying out something new. And there’s only one place we could possibly do this and that’s Bear River, Nova Scotia.

Stay tuned…details to come.
