December Social / Member Meetup

Posted in Events

Hi all,

Come one, come all. We’re having a member meetup the evening of December 12th at NovelTea. (full details to be determined)

Come socialize with fellow TAS members – learn about their art and share your own. Better yet, bring some samples of your work to share!

Or, here’s a neat idea – make yourself an artist trading card to share with others. Just like a sports trading card, it should feature a full image on one side and some information about you on the other, including contact information.

Hope to see you there!

- Your TAS Executive (Rob, Joel, Mary, Christene, Brandt and Matt)

Colchester County Acquires Keith Cheynes' Carving

Posted in Articles

The Truro Art Society has for many years assisted the Municipality of the County of Colchester with their Annual Art Purchase Program. This year Jennifer Boiduk organized the exhibition and 10 artists responded to the call, entering 30 very good quality images. Aside from three members on the County team, the winners from last year’s selection were invited to assist with the judging.

This year, the selected artwork belonged to Keith Cheynes, who has carved a beautiful 3D scene with about 5 fluttering winter birds around a feeder. Although there were several finalists considered, the selection committee felt Cheynes entry of an every-day Colchester scene was one that that many people could identify with.
