2019 Member Artists for Peer Gallery

Presently, Peer gallery co-operative has 14 Nova Scotia artists members.

Our membership, thru our 18 years as a gallery co-operative, has experienced changes of that membership.

As of now, Jane Whitten has moved to PEI. Bob Hainstock has decided to focus his energy in the Valley. We are sorry to see them go but nothing stays static.

However, we are excited to be adding two new members: Carol Morrow, a ceramics artist and Douglas Boutilier, a printmaker and painter.

Peer is looking forward to this recent addition that will add a further visual variety to our space.
