New Art Items Added to Etsy

The summer season is always busy for us in our little resort town by the sea. Still, I have been trying to squeeze in some Internet time to update our etsy site. We signed up last year but didn't really have the time (or knowledge) until now to really get to work - so to speak.

The latest items to be added to etsy include Jantje's super cool cutlery sculptures.

They are really unique and make use of recyled materials. And, they are just $35 plus shipping! What a deal :) Find them here:

In addition, I've included some of my coffee paintings.

I've had a good time photographing them in what's known as "lifestyle" shots. There are currently three of these available...

Meanwhile, I have a brand new line of products to unveil. They are small, easy to ship, inexpensive and really, really fun. I'm waiting on two shipments from the states to complete the packages and then, I will add these new little gems to etsy.

Stay tuned and join our facebook page to get all the updates!

Thanks for reading,

Folk Art Festivities

For the past few months, Jantje has been working on organizing a folk art exhibit at Kingsbrae Garden. In addition to works from seven artists from around the Maritimes (including Jantje), this exhibit  includes a selection of early Canadiana pulled together by folk artist and collector Brian Allen Adams.

Last night, the exhibit opening took place and it was a hit! Several pieces sold and people were charmed by the fun and friendly works of art.

Here are some photos of the reception...

Also, for the reception only, visitors to the Kingsbrae Art Gallery were treated to some original historic pieces of folk art from Maud Lewis, Joe Norris and Joe Sleep.

It was such a fun evening. The show continues through October 8th, 2011 and admission to the gallery is free.
