July 8th was our first poetry evening at Main & Station and it was such fun we are going to make it a regular event. If you would like more information, please contact judith by email or telephone at firstname.lastname@example.org & 514-979-3978 or drop in when the door is open.
WHEN: August 2014. The exhibit opens on August 8th at 6pm. The artist will be on site and will present a short talk about her work. The exhibit will remain open until August 17th.
WHERE: the secondfloor gallery at Main & Station, 168 Main Street, Parrsboro, NS.
Chloé Beaulac, a multidisciplinary artist based out of Montreal, has accepted a residency at Main & Station this August. An exhibition of her work LA NATURE ENTRE NOUS – THE NATURE BETWEEN US will open in the secondfloor gallery at 6pm on August 8th, 2014.
Beaulac puts understanding our role in nature and history at the heart of her artistic pursuit. In the manner of an explorer, she travels a territory letting it infuse her with its history, myths, and personalities. Following these encounters with nature, Beaulac translates them through her screenprints, drawings, paintings, sculptures and multimedia works into symbolic elements that she fragments, recomposes and layers.
Her process of deconstruction and reconstruction is Beaulac’s way of recreating the ephemeral nature of epiphanies. She studies events that have the power to evoke a sense of personal transformation, drawing upon their various spaces, objects and relationships in order to reproduce or capture the essence of their transformative qualities. Through her creations, she meticulously channels the memory of charged events in the interest of creating an accurate representation of the emotions felt during these experiences rather than the fallible images once recorded by memory. Her works are a personal representation of identity, influence and reflection.
WHEN: Friday July 25, 2014 at 10AM
WHERE: Partridge Island with a Meet at 9:30am at Main & Station, 168 Main Street, Parrsboro, NS. Please note that the location is subject to change depending on the condition of the forests following the damage caused by Arthur.

This Friday afternoon Margie of Mag’s Beehive will be joining us at Main & Station around 1pm. Stop by for coffee and cake and check out her array of essential oils and beeswax creams, lip balms and candles. She makes the oils from local products such as balsam, lavender and roses. Because it smells like a forest my favourite is the cracked skin body balm (and yes, it also feels great!)
Margie also sells yummy honey.
