A Gathering Place for Expression: The Elizabeth Bishop Festival Market

One of the main events of the Elizabeth Bishop Festival taking place in Great Village on 8 August 2015 is the Festival Market, where over a dozen artists and artisans will gather to share their creations. This post is a profile of photographer Brenda Barry.

Brenda Barry loves to hike: from Kejimkujik to Chignecto, from Long Island to Tancook Island. She began to photograph the beauty of Nova Scotia’s landscapes in 2012, and last year she started to put some of these vibrant images on cards.

She is one of the owners of the Elizabeth Bishop House and has, like many other photographers, taken delightful photographs of it — and of Great Village.
