Sneak Peek: Paints & Prints at The Nook

For the month of October, The Nook (2116 Gottingen) is featuring drawings by Danika Vandersteen and paintings by Sara Russell, both NSCAD graduates living in Halifax. The show opened last night to a full cafe that smelled like cookies. I had a pop. Vandersteen (Old & Weird) says that she "fragments surreal figures and decorative tropes to build patterned landscapes." Russell's current work is "a series of oil paintings where pool-inspired landscapes meet abstracted inflatable palettes." Both artist's works are on sale. Here's a sneak peek.
