The Lost Gallery, Mahone Bay

17 05 2010

Friday night was the gala opening of the new contemporary art gallery, The Lost Gallery, in Mahone Bay. This is the exciting new venture of Lynette and Angus Park.

Lynette and Angus moved to Nova Scotia, from Aberdeen, 2 years ago and have been dreaming of the day when they would open their own gallery. They bought a former bookstore, at 532 Main Street and Angus has spent the past winter renovating the 1850 building into an impressive area to display modern art.

Here Lynette stands with her painting of the famous Mahone Bay churches, which are just opposite the gallery.

Lynette paints abstracts and abstract impressionist paintings. Pride of place in the gallery is  an eight foot square canvas, ‘Big W”, Lynette’s reaction to how George W Bush handled hurricane Katrina. It shows people drowning, the Statue of Liberty holding a hamburger, American money, skyscrapers and building plans.

The ‘Big W’ painting.

This painting is entitled ‘The Harbour’

Here is another abstract entitled ‘The Handbag’.

The coastal scenes of Nova Scotia also feature in Lynette’s paintings, from Peggy’s Cove, and Blue Rocks, to Lunenburg.

As well as Lynette’s paintings, the gallery exhibits 3-dimension work by Angus,  and work by other Nova Scotian artists.

This gallery is a great addition to the South Shore and I wish Lynette and Angus every success in their new venture.

Very interesting. I like those last three very much.

Culture and art are “nutrition of our soul”. I also wish success to Lynette and Angus.

I too love the paintings of local fishing sheds and buildings. I think it’s always easier for us to understand those Thank you for taking the time to comment and for your good wishes to Lynette and Angus.

Hi, Lynette and Angus are returning to Scotland, so don’t expect she’ll be exhibiting in Nova Scotia. Such a shame!
