Artists Kim Jabbour and Nancy Barnes join gallery

Painting by Kim JabbourArtisans on Main, Montague welcomes Kim Jabbour and Nancy Barnes to the gallery at 10 Water Street in Montague.

Kim was born in New Brunswick and grew up on PEI. Her love for the Island’s beauty is the inspiration for painting. Her earliest memories are that of colouring, painting by numbers and creating something out of nothing. She’s always loved that concept. Her first formal lesson was in 2004 with artist, Henry Purdy. Her medium of choice is acrylics, but she dabbles in oils and watercolours. She says that she tries to approach each painting as an experiment. Presently her focus is on creating one painting every day, which she began this year on January 1. You are welcome to follow her daily painting journey on Instagram (@kimjabbour).

Nancy grew up on a farm in Ontario and moved to PEI in 1977 in pursuit of her first job as an occupational therapist. After a few years she furthered her career across Canada and the U.S. deciding to retire in Murray River in 2012. She has drawn and painted through her life with her primary focus being landscapes and rural life. In more recent times a special interest has emerged in exploring in more detail light, shadow and reflections, as well as abstract art. Currently her primary medium is acrylic, but she has worked in oil and watercolour in the past.
