Joy's 2014 Open House Exhibition is October 18, 19, 25 and 26 from 10 until 5.  This year's exhibition features many new watercolours, acrylics and oils of Nova Scotia and two large paintings and numerous sketches done in India.  There are also three new prints.  Our new greeting cards include  a new "Cape Breton in the Autumn" Series.


The "Across the Surface" exhibition with Tom Forrestall, Shelley Mitchell, Paul Hannon, Susan Paterson, Gordon MacDonald, Ed Huner and Joy is on display at the Inverness Cultural Centre until October 24.

"Capture 2014, Nova Scotia Realism" opens at the University of Cape Breton Art Gallery, Sydney in November.

Here is a link to a time-lapse video of me painting an oil at Shortt's Lake.
