- "Warrior" Plate by Gina Etra Stick
If you're down at the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market anytime this week, this is your last chance to check out the Nova Scotia Designer Craft's Council's member exhibition at the Mary E. Black Gallery (1061 Marginal Road, #104), a branch of the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design. Closing on November 8, the exhibition features a representative survey of works (44 works by 25 fine craftspeople, to be exact) that will inspire and delight. The event is also part of Craft Year 2015, "a year-long nation-wide festival aimed at promoting craft as a key player in Canadian culture." Selected by a juried NSDCC panel, the exhibition features Kate Church, Neil Cronk, Brad Hall, Trish Hirschkorn, Jan Hull, Alexa Jaffurs, Steven Kennard, Debra Kuzyk & Ray Mackie, Wendy Landry, Karen LeBlanc, Alexandra McCurdy, Beverley McInnes, Margot Metcalfe, Rhonda Miller, Rachel Morouney, Mengnan Qu, Lynette Richards, Rosi Robinson, Chris Shute, Allyson Simmie, Carol Smeraldo, Kay Stanfield, Gina Etra Stick (pictured above), Isako Suzuki and Deborah Wheeler. While at the Market on Saturday picking up local fruits and veggies, might as well swing by and check out local artwork. For more information, you can visit NSCCD here.
