We are delighted to announce an opportunity to meet Sydney Humble and Dylan Nickolet and to sample their culinary creations…
Both from Saskatoon, the young couple are avid explorers who spent last winter travelling the world. This year they have chosen to travel around their own country and drove here at the beginning of the month in order to spend a few months in Parrsboro before going to Montreal where Sydney will be commencing a program of study at Concordia University in January. A visual artist, Dylan is making good use fo his time here to draw and create every day. He has also worked several years in kitchens and loves creating and cooking wholesome food for himself and loved ones.
Join us on Sunday 22 October at 5pm in the Nonesuch Café.
The cost is $12 per person and reservations are required. You can reserve by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 514-979-3978.
ARTIST TALK with NANCY AGATI: Wednesday, 9 AUGUST at 7:30pm in Main & Station’s secondfloor gallery, 168 Main Street, Parrsboro.
Winner of the 2016 Nonesuch Art of Paper L’Usine de papier Award for the most creative paper construction for her work Nectar, Nancy Agati is an artist living and working in Philadelphia. She is currently in Parrsboro for a Nonesuch Art Residency and, in addition to working on her on projects, is offering Carving The Sea, a Community Art Project which invites public participation.
The tools and materials Nancy uses tend to change piece by piece depending on the concept of the work. Most often she leans toward finding objects from nature to lead the way for a project. Natural materials that inspire her include vines, mica, birch bark, driftwood, wasp nests, seed pods, insect trails et cetera.
Along with making artwork, Nancy is employed as a studio art instructor.
Carving the Sea is a Community Art Project which invites the public to participate in creating a large carving that can then be used as a relief sculpture and/or a block from which to create a print. Nancy has brought along tools to allow participation of 10-12 people at a time. If you would like to participate, please send an email to email@example.com. PASSERSBY ARE ALSO WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE so you may also come by Main & Station on Saturday 12 August to just watch or to join in as space and tools allow.
