Locavores love White Point’s Gift Shop: 110 Nova Scotian Artists and growing
Some days we still pinch ourselves!
How lucky are we to be surrounded by works of more than 110 local Nova Scotian artists. To be honest we feel like we’re in the epicenter of our incredibly talented artistic community here at White Point.
We’re on a mission to celebrate and showcase original works, introducing our guests to artists. Our Gift Shop Manager, Cathie Pincombe, has actually curated such a large collection of artists and crafters that we’ve had to burst out of her tiny but mighty 200 sqft gift shop, sprawl out onto the property with our 90th Anniversary SEA’Spired Ourdoor Sculpture Show!
While there are likely a number of familiar names in the list below, we hope that you’ll find a few that are new to you and have you wanting to discover them. Some have been long-time Artists of White Point, participating in our annual Show in November or having hosted one of our Brush with Good Cheer classes. Some you will have noticed adorning the walls of the Main Lodge, some you may have met while you where here – some are our staff members!
Together, they express the essence of Nova Scotia and our coastal oasis. It’s been our pleasure and honour to showcase their work. Seeing it admired, appreciated and cherished as they go to their forever homes around the world is one of our greatest joys.
Please drop in to the Gift Shop when you are here as an overnight guest, or just passing through!
Open Daily, you’ll always find something interesting and inspiring.
