Some of Nova Scotia’s finest artists will be opening their studios to the public this weekend.
The upcoming Studio Rally weekend slated for Oct. 5-6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, features a few Hants County-based destinations.
David Howells, a professional artist living in St. Croix, will be inviting observers into his studio space at 9 Bobbit Drive to shed some light on the creation process behind his exquisite oil paintings.
According to the official Studio Rally website, Howells’ “rich hues and textures with tapestry-like qualities trigger the imagination to romp in the traditional, pastoral landscapes he creates.”
Revered local metalworker Al Simm, of 616 Sangster Bridge Road, is opening the doors of his Falmouth-based studio, where he creates eye-catching artistic sculptures and such functional pieces as fireplace screens, stair railings, gates and signposts.
Milford-based woodcarver Jennifer Marlow’s studio and work will be on display at 1955 Highway 2, and Ben McLellan, of 9007 Highway 215 in Maitland, will also be sharing wood pieces with the public.
The community-owned Gallery 215, located at 8247 Highway 215, in Selma will be open, featuring exhibits comprised of works by 60 Nova Scotian artists.
