“Echoes of Elizabeth Bishop” Gallery: Profile of Artist Andrew Meredith

Andrew Meredith finds inspiration for his vivid paintings, prints and cards in his east coast roots and current western home. Raised in Nova Scotia where he began his career, Andrew now lives in Saskatchewan. An artist of many mediums, Andrew’s subjects range from the realistic to the fantastical, and are expressed with a vibrantly colourful palette. Andrew has had solo arts shows in western Canada, including the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre, and in group exhibitions, including the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Shurniak Art Gallery in Saskatchewan. His works can be found in homes, offices, gift shops and galleries across Canada. In 2015 his drawing “Winter Fun” was a finalist in a design contest for the Royal Canadian Mint. Andrew has joined the colouring book renaissance and created one to honour Great Village, which was launched in the village a couple of years ago. He is launching a Nova Scotia colouring book in Great Village in May 2017. Andrew spends part of his summer in the village, so the EBSNS definitely regards him as a Colchester County artist.

Quick update: I am excited to report that the EB exhibit/gallery committee has begun the installation of the works for the inaugural gallery exhibition. We are making good progress and are on track for the big opening at our Annual General Meeting on 17 June. Stay tuned for more updates.
