I went to Newfoundland and came home with more than cod – I came home with a new gallery home in St. John’s. The Christina Parker Gallery, at 50 Water Street, has taken me into their roster, and already has a major piece sold at a fundraising auction last week for the Neonatal Unit of the Janeway Centre. Bidding on “Riding the Wave, Old Perlican Harbour” went very well, raising a considerable amount of money for the hospital.
Another major piece, “Main Wharf, Old Perlican Harbour “ will now be offered for sale at the gallery. Christina Parker gallery is an awesome space, with enormous rooms, overlooking St. John’s Harbour, featuring excellent, serious artwork, with a common denominator of having high cultural relevance to Newfoundland and Labrador.
I have always hoped my Old Perlican Harbour work could be sold in Newfoundland. I am delighted that Christina has taken me on, and I really look forward to incubating many more major works about this place that resides so deeply in my heart.
