Planting Favourites

Gardening Delights
by Nancy Oakes

For the last few years, the acquisition of new perennials has taken a back seat to the daylilies, but last spring the mania began again, albeit in a more controlled fashion. Here a few of my favourites from last year.

Artemisia lactiflora `Guizhou' would not, for most, be readily identified as an Artemisia, which is primarily associated with silvery foliage. It's

Lighthouse Gallery Fills a Need

by C.J. Veach

Over the winter a number of Prince County artists have had the chance to display their works at the same venue. The Lighthouse Gallery, located at 401 Water Street in Summerside, has been the off-season home for these works which will soon be making the summer gallery circuit. Local artist and retired dentist, Dr. John Robertson, is responsible for the gallery that shares space with

A Sound Room with a View

Gordon and Charlene Belsher operate Guernsey Cove Parlour Productions from their home by the shore
It was three years ago that I was last at Gordon and Charlene Belsher's home and recording studio in Guernsey Cove. At the time, they were putting a wrap around verandah on their house to take advantage of the beautiful view of the Northumberland Straight. It was there that I had one of

A Pinch of Purple in Every Rug

A Pinch of Purple in Every Rug
Jackie O'Connell

by Jane Ledwell

The first thing Jackie O'Connell tells me about rug hooking is that it's not something you can do without making a mess. "The lint gets all over you," she says, brushing errant bits of wool from herself on instinct. There's not much lint in evidence in the tidy Charlottetown apartment where she cares for her mother. There's plenty of evidence of

Finding Out when He Gets There

Finding Out when He Gets There
Nigel Roe

by Jane Ledwell

Visual artist Nigel Roe graces PEI's arts community thanks to accidents and inspirations. Once, he thought he wanted to be an oceanographer. A career in the arts hadn't occurred to him-but in his neighbourhood in Montreal, he was inspired by a professor from the Ecole des beaux arts-an artist, who had "a house painted with flowers, a sports car, a gorgeous

Great Garden of the Gulf opens

Great Garden of the Gulf opens

by Treva McNally

Two weeks before The Garden of the Gulf Juried Exhibition opened, I went to the Confederation Centre to see the more than 150 pieces of art submitted for judging. My knowledge of art is limited, but I decided to pick out thirty pieces and compare them to the thirty selected by the judges. There was an incredible variety to choose from: woodworking, rug hooking,

First I'd like to congratulate all the Island ECMA winners on a job very well done. In particular congratulations go to Rik Barron for his award as children's entertainer of the year. That award is long

Long Live the ECMAs

by Maureen McTague

Every year, for the past eleven, the East Coast Music Awards and Conference has united music-industry professionals and enthusiasts together to celebrate and promote artists and talent from Canada's East Coast. Talk about mixing business with pleasure, this year's event in Sydney, NS, was stellar, as usual, and artists from our quiet little Island created a rather loud buzz
