I’m happy to announce that a dear friend of mine that I met while growing up in my hometown has opened up her own gallery in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Her name is Amber LeDrew-Bonvarlez and she is an exquisitely talented artist and curator.
Located at 29 Rowan St., The Kraken Art Gallery boasts a retail space as well as enough room for artists to work onsite. I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting yet but the pictures that have been shared on their website and Facebook page have me itching to buy a ticket out east.
They regularly host workshops and monthly events such as “Mimosa’s & Monet” coming up on Saturday, November 10th. Past themed events have included “Pint & Picasso” and “Vodka & Van Gogh”.
If any of you find yourselves wandering around St. John’s on one of these beautiful fall afternoons, amble on over to the gallery and take a peek at what they have in store!
