A Gathering Place for Artisans and Artists: The Elizabeth Bishop Festival Market

One of the main features of the Elizabeth Bishop Festival taking place in GV on 8 August 2015 is the “Festival Market,” where over a dozen artists and artisans will gather to share their creations. We will be profiling these artists and artisans over the next few months. This post is a profile of painter Andrew Meredith.

Andrew’s passion for art came early in life, surrounded by the colours and beauty of Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy, where Andrew was born. Andrew has had his art in galleries across Canada. In 2003 his artwork was featured at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. In 2011 Andrew created several images of the Elizabeth Bishop House. Part of the proceeds of the sale of prints of these paintings went to support the house
Andrew's charming painting of the Elizabeth Bishop House for his 2011 fund-raiser.
