Bonita Hatcher presents satire for Art in the Open

by Katie Smith

If you’ve ever wanted to see Stephen Harper’s head in a jar, this summer you will have the opportunity to. Well, sort of. Halifax artist Bonita Hatcher is creating a satirical, political opera featuring Prime Minister Harper and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, where images of their heads are captured in jars and made to look like they are

If Not for an Artist

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

This crazy art show is just an illusion. The wings of the Sternocera Aequisignata beetle seem to be green or, in a certain light, blue. And yet—they’re actually just tiny cells that reflect the light, a trick of the eye. They aren’t really art, either. And yet Matt Bowness has made them into art—clothing, sculpture, jewelry—into things we don’t suppose an insect’s wing should be. No

Island Poetry: Dianne Hicks Morrow

Seed Planting

Funny what makes me cry:
leftover Vesey’s Seeds
your farmer’s fingers will never sow,
the guestbook from The Roost
with your misspelled notations on weather,
tides, and deaths in the back.
Your La-Z-Boy, upholstery darkened
by the warmth of your legs,
sits in the cold basement of my mother-in-law’s
waiting for your grandson to make a home for it.

My house is bursting with

Art in the Open
by Katie Smith

The Island's landscape is in a constant state of change. While it’s hard to see this change from one day to the next, it become quite obvious when comparing current maps of Prince Edward Island to ones from last century.

Attitude is Everything

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

It is the middle of March, and while open water beckons over the horizon, the land remains imprisoned by ice and snow. Three weeks ago we made a snow-woman down at the shore. She is still plump and bossy. Today is overcast and she does not need her sunglasses, but they look good on her, she thinks. Besides they’re frozen to her nose. Which is to say that she i

Art in the Open
By Katie Smith

As children we can spend hours a day playing make-believe in a fort made from blankets or cardboard boxes, letting our imaginations take over. Inside these magical places we are brought to a different land, removed from the outside world.

As we get older and get wrapped up in our day-to-day lives, we rarely allow

Art in the Open
by Katie Smith

After hundreds of hours and thousands of his own dollars spent, a local artist has created an Optimus Prime replica that stands at an impressive 12 feet tall and actually transforms into a semi-truck, which is seven-feet long from bumper to bumper, and weighs more than 200 pounds.

Three years ago, Chris Ruprecht wanted to make

Profile: Laura Cole

by Jane Ledwell

In Ontario, what was one in a million here is one of a kind,” says Laura Cole of her chosen Island home, where she settled almost ten years ago first in Pinette and then in Charlottetown to pursue her passion for craft and creation.

“We came here to retire…someday,” she adds with a wry smile, in the busy studio/office where she creates glass-on-glass mosaic and works

I believe strongly that art is everywhere…everyone should be open to the beautiful things in life.”

If you’ve had the pleasure of interacting with Sarah O’Brien (perhaps at a craft fair, the farmer’s market or on Facebook) she has a way of making you feel as though you are a gleeful spectator of the ongoing street festival whirling around this peppy
