Anything for Money
Bideford artist Nan Ferrier accepts an unusual commission

by Sue Gallant

It’s not easy painting a work of art outdoors, onto the concave surface of a large, tall, disused, satellite dish. The job is made even more challenging with a pot-bellied pig hanging around at the base of your ladder, passing the time by using the structure upon which you are precariously balanced as a convenient backscratcher. I

A live musical tribute to the first three and most famous members of The Pack, delighted audiences at the Harbourfront Jubilee Theatre in Summerside this July and August.

The Edge
US and Canadian visual artists explore shared exhibition theme

by Sue Gallant

A definition of the word edge, when used as a noun, is the line where something begins or ends. It’s a definition recently explored in great creative detail by five Maine, and nine Island visual artists. The result is an impressive combined exhibition at the Cultural Centre in Tignish.

The Edge: where land and water meet,

Meteor Model
Island ship-building history created in newspaper and home-made glue

by Sue Gallant

Loretta Ross of Bideford proudly shows her papier-mache model of the Meteor, made in ten weeks at Ellerslie Community School this year.

Her name was the Meteor. She was one of the last, magnificent, wooden sailing ships to be built and launched from the Bideford wharf in Western PEI, in 1892.

The story of the Meteor,

Exile and Return
Moncton artist Finton Wade opens exhibit at Musée Acadien

by Sue Gallant

Finton Wade of Moncton is a man who quite obviously enjoys life. He smiles and laughs a lot. The man’s sunny disposition is utterly contagious. Wade is a proud Acadian; a retired elementary school teacher; a musician; singer/songwriter; and a visual artist with an undisguised passion for Acadian history.

An exhibition of Wade’s

The PEI Folk Music Centre will be housed in the historic

Take the High Road
Nan Ferrier illustrates section of PEI highway, Route 225

by Sue Gallant

A unique piece of artwork has been under construction this summer, at the West Island Art Gallery Co-operative in Bideford.

The piece began life as a roll of drawing paper: a very long, twelve inch wide roll of drawing paper; given to folk-artist, Nan Ferrier. What use to put said roll of paper to? Ferrier found the answer whilst

The Best Thing
by Sue Gallant

The best thing? I can pick only one? That's not going to be easy. I shall choose my younger brother's visit to my home here on PEI, accompanied by his charming wife and two children.

I left England in 1995 and have not been back since. I have wonderful friends here on PEI but it gets lonely sometimes when most everyone you meet comes from the biggest extended family imaginable.

An Old Maid to Marry

Review by Sue Gallant

On the evening I visited Le Village de l'Acadie to review the Acadian dinner-theatre presentation, La Cuisine à Mémé, the cast seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as the audience, and the standing ovation eventually awarded the beaming actors up on stage taking their final bow, was justly deserved. They worked hard for a solid three hours or more.

First Adieus
Barachois

Review by Sue Gallant

If you don't know anything about the tradition of Acadian music; if you've been living on another planet and have never heard of Barachois; you would still live to regret not booking tickets to see this awesome foursome perform for the last time this summer on PEI.

Barachois are taking their final bow this year after nine years together. Their high energy performances
