Nan Ferrier exhibits new works

Nan Ferrier at the launch of her latest art exhibition The Western Road and Beyond

Anyone travelling Route Two in Western Prince Edward Island, could not help but notice the unusually bright-coloured exterior paint jobs adorning many homes and buildings along the way in that particular, geographical region. Island artist Nan Ferrier of Bideford has been admiring these eye-catching facades for years: so much so, that she has just launched her first 2003 exhibition featuring twenty-two of them. The exhibition is entitled The Western Road and Beyond.

"I have been wanting to do this Western Road show for years," said Ferrier, speaking at the exhibition launch held at The Landing in Tyne Valley. "They [the brightly-coloured houses and barns] are places that show the character of the inhabitants. For instance, The Brit's Barn, with the Union Jack flying and the red white and blue barn. Other buildings are evocative or wistful and you have to wonder what happened in the abandoned ones. Nearby long-time residents tell some fascinating and intriguing stories about these abandoned buildings and homes."

Executed in oil, pastel, pencil and crayon, images in The Western Road and Beyond can be viewed at The Landing until March 16, then at The Tignish Cultural Centre from March 20 to April 20. Because of the local and personal subject matter, they are sure to draw as much attention as Ferrier's highly successfull 2002 exhibition entitled The Barn Show. In it, Ferrier depicted barn buildings from across PEI.
