Mark Hamilton paints during the Elizabeth Bishop Festival

Mark Hamilton began exhibiting visual art in 1985 with the Surrealist group “An Episode of Sparrows,” and has since shown in a range of visual media at NSCAD, Dalhousie University, private galleries, and extensively through online “virtual” galleries. You can find him at https://www.facebook.com/markhamiltonart
Mark and his good friend John Barnstead (our esteemed collaborator on this blog and another festival artist) in the kitchen of the Elizabeth Bishop House. [Ed. Note: They are delightful goofs, 
AND two of the smartest guys you will ever meet.]
Mark studied drawing and sculpture at NSCAD and has been painting for 30 years. His work is represented in collections in Canada, the United States, Russia and New Zealand. He currently manages an open studio (The Art Barn) at Brookfield, N.S., where he lives with his wife and two daughters. His favourite poem is “The Moose.”
