Exhibit at Fraser Cultural Centre

In April, I posted a note about Nova Scotia artists Joy Laking and Susan Paterson’sresidency at the Elizabeth Bishop House in Great Village in February, and the lovely paintings they did during a wintery week. I am excited to report that these paintings will be exhibited at the Fraser Cultural Centre in Tatamagouche, N.S., from 18 June to 7 July. It is wonderful that these beautiful images of this beloved house and village will have an in-person airing, to be enjoyed and admired directly, not just virtually. By the end of June, Nova Scotia will be further out of lock-down, so I hope lots of folks will get out to visit the centre and see these paintings.
