Spring 2010 Public Workshop Series

Spring Open House

We are happy to announce our spring Open House. The Fire-Hall will be blossoming with painted, screen-printed, spun, woven and ceramic works on display. We hope you can join us Saturday May 1st, 2010 from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at the NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studios.

Installation at the Port Loggia Gallery

In February we were granted a show at the Port Loggia Gallery in NSCAD University's Port Campus. Our intention was to raise awareness about the Residency Program within the University. While it was a lot of work, as shows always are, we can now reflect happily on the Port Loggia installation.

We divided the gallery into three sections giving each of us a chance to highlight our individual work within the space. The birch walls and high ceilings provided a unique backdrop for the work.

Our noon talk was a great opportunity to answer questions about our experiences in Lunenburg so far and to hopefully entice a new group of applicants to this valuable program. Thanks to all that made it out for our opening, and our noon talk, we hope you enjoyed the show.

Lunenburg Chowder Club Presentation

In early April we gave a presentation to the Lunenburg Chowder Club at the St. Johns Anglican Church Hall, bringing awareness of the residency program to another branch of the Lunenburg Community.

The presentation was introduced by town Mayor Mawhinney and Senator Wilfred Moore who both spoke about how the program was initiated.

Sharon Blanchard represented NSCAD University's School Of Extended Studies and gave an overview of the specifics of the program.

And for some final food for thought (even though they had already had a bowl of chowder) we spoke about our time here thus far and our plans for the rest of our year in Lunenburg.

Together with the Friends of the NSCAD-Lunenburg Community Studio Residency Program we arranged a small showcase highlighting our own work, as well as that done by previous residents.

Thank you to everyone who came out for a great lunch and to hear our talk - we really appreciate all the interest that the community here has in the residency.
