Black Sheep Gallery Welcome to our spring update. We are looking forward to our opening on June 15th, and will have more information about our opening exhibition and sale in our next newsletter.

This month we are featuring our good friend and Eastern Shore artist Barry Colpitts, who has been busy making more carvings to mount on his house. His new additions to the already remarkable display are decorative elements which are to be hung over the windows and doors. He reports that these elements represent “the night sky and animals that are out there as protection for the people in the house”. This spring Barry has been carving bird families, as well as a cat with a lady’s face and lady with a cat’s face. He enjoys carving cats, which have become popular with collectors throughout North America, because they “have a prettiness to them”. He explains that this is the same reason he started carving: “You can take a piece of wood and make it pretty, making the world a little prettier”. We heartily agree and hope you enjoy the new carvings from Barry we have added to the site.

Also new to the site this month from Alden Killen is a wonderful carving of a fisherman, complete with sou’ wester, pulling in his nets, as well as a carved bust from the late Donald Boudreau, who was among the first wave of contemporary Nova Scotian folk artists discovered by Chris Huntington in the early 1970s.

Don’t forget to take a look at the other two recent acquisitions at the gallery, a pair of Love Birds by Leo Naugler and a Smoked Cod by Ransford Naugler.

Enjoy the spring weather!
