There is still time to catch the retrospective exhibition of work by Island artist Nan Ferrier. "85 Years of Painting and Drawing" showcases work from various stages in Nan's art history. The exhibit features portraits, life drawings, streetscapes, landscapes, figure skaters, moments from everyday life, and other works. Nan Ferrier has also been offering regular art demonstrations most Wednesday and Friday mornings between 10:30 and 12 noon. Visitors might even get to hear her playing the piano between brush strokes. This exhibit has been extended into August.
Be sure to visit the permanent exhibition on the history and architecture of Summerside.
