What an artist, what an exhibit!
You have less than a week to see this compilation of art inspired by the Stone and Sand and Sea and Sky.
Helen Opie was born in England, was taken to the US when World War ll broke out, and immigrated here in response to a dream she had several years before and in celebration of the US bicentennial slogan "Love it or Leave it”.Now, living in Granville Ferry, she is a household name in Annapolis Royal, especially in the artist community.
This new series of works by Helen was inspired her emotional response to a song by Rose Vaughan that is the Exhibit’s namesake: Stone and Sand and Sea and Sky. Helen wrote in her artist statement: “These paintings arise from my own feeling of connection to the Entity of this world when I am on the shore”.
