Paintings by Glenda and Barbara MacLeod at The Guild
PEI artist, Barbara MacLeod, will present her first art show August 30 to September 10 at The Gallery at the Guild in Charlottetown. The exhibition will feature a selection of oil and acrylic paintings. Opening reception will be on September 1 at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Barb spent most of her career as a retail entrepreneur opening Whipper Snapper, The Fun Toy Store and The Uncommon Grocer in Charlottetown. Over the past five years painting has become a big part of her life. Influenced by her mother Glenda, who passed away in 2002, Barb found that picking up a paintbrush didn’t seem like a big leap.
“Mom was a closet artist and this is where she found her joy,” says Barb who is adding some of her mothers paintings to her show. “She was my biggest influence in life and I wanted her with me as I put up my first show.”
