listen, do you want to know a secret?


My pals Chis O'Neill and Ken Schwartz of the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts have come up with another brilliant idea...

The Ross Creek Secret
Join Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in Halifax for a unique, entertaining & creative fundraiser known as the Ross Creek Secret. Argyle Fine Art on Upper Water St. in Halifax is host to the two-day event.

For The Secret, over 100 provincial and national artists have created over 200 postcard sized original works of art just for this event. Every piece will be sold for $50 with all money going to support Ross Creek's Art Academy Programs. The Secret is…the works are only signed on the back and you can’t find out who created the piece you bought until after you buy it! The works range from paper, clay, glass, metal to fabric.

Contributing artists include, Margaret Atwood, Karen Kain, Holly Carr, Alan Bateman, Roger Savage, and dozens more (including me) …all one of a kind originals, just in time for Christmas! Limit of four pieces per buyer, and first come first served.
Yes, it's true - I took a turn at making a piece of postcard art. It was fun (even therapeutic...) Even though I can't tell you which one is mine, I can tell you that I've browsed through the pieces online and they are beautiful, diverse and inviting. And...the event is in support of Ross Creek's wonderful programs for emerging artists in theatre, visual arts, dance and more.

And then make plans to get to Argyle Fine Art on Saturday November 3rd.
1869 Upper Water St. - Halifax


Reception & Preview: Friday November 2nd from 6pm - 8pm
SALE of WORKS: Saturday November 3rd from 10am-3pm at Argyle Fine Art.
Please bring cash, Visa or Mastercard.
