Witherstone Gallery, Lunenburg, NS

Earlier this year, a new gallery opened in Lunenburg, NS, called Witherstone Gallery. Artist, Shawn Orne, conceived and established this gallery to showcase local artisans. Shawn has created a beautiful space in the heart of Lunenburg's unofficial art district, on Lincoln Street. This little part of Lunenburg has several galleries and art studios clustered together so it's a great spot to visit if you are in the area.

There is an amazing group of artists showcased at Witherstone. Alongside local artists such as Shelagh Duffett, Daina D. Scarola, Marina Smith, Sarah Morton, Sharon Hodgson, Mike and Sherry Goede, Julia Williamson, Shawn Orne, and more, I am thrilled to have my work on display here (part of the display shown here on the right). The next photo (below) shows another angle in the gallery where you can see the work of some of the artists mentioned previously.

Recently there was a Street Festival and Artwalk in Lunenburg so I was there with my work, set up on the sidewalk outside Witherstone Gallery. I was making books and had some work on display. Set up beside me was another one of Witherstone's artists, Anouk. She is here (photo below, in the pink) with several of her amazing paintings displayed on the sidewalk near the gallery. Anouk's work is amazing, you can see more on her blog at
