Welcome to the worldly adventures of SEVEN

SEVEN is a collective of multi-disciplined artists from rural Nova Scotia. Collaboration is the foundation for creativity, where each artist responds artistically in her own medium to a selected theme. Through collective discourse, various elements combine to form a much richer body of thought - adding new and perhaps unforeseen levels of creativity and interpretation.

Rurally routed to their tidal landscape, SEVEN knows, what goes out, does come in.

From here to there and back again

SEVEN is currently showcasing their exhibit titled Udveksling at the intriguing home of the Charles Macdonald Concrete Museum in Centreville, Nova Scotia. This particular show has already been on exhibit at the Craig Gallery in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia but we thought it would be such a great opportunity to showcase the exhibit closer to where we live and where we practice our art. The show will be up until the end of June, 2011.

One of the exciting reasons for exhibiting our show based on the Exchange of ideas, inspirations and culture of our first international exhibit in Denmark (2010) at the Charles Macdonald Concrete House Museum is that Charles Macdonald was also very much into the exchange of ideas, materials and inspirations. He spent most of his life living in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia but frequently traveled abroad. It is from his expeditions that he brought back with him the many ideas on styles, approaches to art and various mediums which he further explored in the comforts of his own home.

From the Charles Macdonald Concrete House Museum Website:
"In his ninety-three years, Charles Macdonald was a sailor, a sculptor,
a painter, a builder, a manufacturer, and a socialist. The Charles Macdonald
House of Centreville Society celebrates the life and work of this exceptional
Nova Scotian."

You can read further about the incredibly talented and prolific man and the museum based on his homestead by visiting: The Charles Macdonald Concrete House Museum. You can also find directions to the museum on this site.

We hope you have an opportunity to drop by and see our show and of course learn more about the people who paved the way for many ideas and developments in our beloved Annapolis Valley.
