Words AND Pictures
Often when we see art hanging in galleries and wonder…where can I put this? If you’re like me, there’s not a lot of space to spare between the windows, ceilings and floors for newly acquired art. As a gallery owner, I hear this all the time! But there’s another way to collect art. BOOKS!
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero.
Did you know that we offer several books by local artists and photographers? Steve Skafte, a talented, local writer and photographer has published several books of poetry and we have them all!
Melissa Fillmore of Past to Present Photos is passionate about restoring our histories through photographs and she has published Coffee Table book, titled Annapolis Royal Through the Seasons which is a compilation of photographs by local residents that takes you on a 4 season journey of Annapolis Royal.
Books = Art whether they sit on a shelf, your coffee table or bedside. Books are like a gift that you can enjoy anywhere and that transport you anywhere - no wall space requited!
Here’s a riddle for you:
What do we hang that changes every month?
Why a calendar!
We have a limited quantity of 2019 calendars that are a photographic collection of local landmarks through the eyes of Steve Skafte. Best yet, they are signed by their creator!
Come in and sit and enjoy leafing through our selection of lovely, local, books. We would love to see you!
