Announcing 'The Final Eight'
The waiting is over!
For the past couple of weeks, painters across the province have been waiting to hear who would be selected to take part in this year's Sharing the View Calendar in support of Feed Nova Scotia.
As we have mentioned before, we invited 4 'marquee artists' to be the foundation of this year's project, and those 4 artists were part of a jury, along with our collegue Phlis McGregor and the calendar photographer, Craig York of Imagehouse.
They had their work cut out for them -- There were 121 submissions in all, and a couple of the jury members commented on how high the quality of entries was overall.
But, they did manage to select the 8 painters who will fill out the other months of the calendar
In no particular order, they are: Christopher Gorey of Ingonish, Louise Williams of Annapolis Royal, Monika Wright in Tantallon and Lio Lo of Shelburne
Also on board this year are Su Rogers of Lunenburg, Geoffrey Grantham of Purcells Cove, Wayne Leal of Big Bras Dor, and Barbara McLean of Chester Basin
Thanks to all the painters who submitted entries -- we appreciate all your enthusiasm for sharing the view. And our collegue Eileen McInnis, will introduce us properly to the 'chosen' eight, Monday and Tuesday on Information Morning.
