Thank you to all who joined us for a very successful 3rd anniversary celebration on April 24, 2016.
Courtyard Gallery is accepting applications from committed artists and artisans who are interested in becoming “gallery artists”. All pieces must be the original, hand-produced work of the artists, and members are chosen for originality and diversity of their work.
In exchange for a monthly membership fee, your work will be exhibited in the gallery. We charge a small commission fee of 20% and we all work co-operatively to run the gallery.
If you are interested in being part of this not for profit, artist run gallery, please contact Tatianna O'Donnell at:
Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
Water based artwork from August 30 to October 15, 2106.
On October 1 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., you are invited to come down to the building adjacent to Courtyard Gallery, and talk to some of our artists in person.
In celebration of Culture Days, a number of the artists from Courtyard Gallery will be there to answer your questions and talk about their process… from inspiration to final product. What materials do they use? Why are they working with those materials? How does inspiration come to them; where do they source it out?
Have a cup of coffee and some goodies and find out what you have always wanted to know about the artist's process and thinking. Bring your family, children and friends and inspire each other. Share the culture.
Culture Days is a collaborative Canada-wide, volunteer movement to raise awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
Every year, on the Culture Days weekend, thousands of artists, individuals, organizations and communities offer free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes,” to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work.
August 30 to October 15
October 18 to November 19
