Last month at the Gallery…
July was a busy month at the gallery, with lots of exciting events! We began the month with the Opening of our second location in the Windsor House in St Andrews over the Canada Day long weekend. The opening was a success, with lots of locals and tourists stopping by!
In other news, Trinity Galleries in Saint John held a reception for the opening of the Honorary Finnish Consulate early in July. The Finnish Ambassador to Canada - Charles Murto and his wife - and many dignitaries, including Mayor Don Darling, were on hand to formally open the Consulate. The official appointment for Beth is Honorary Consul of Finland for NB and PEI!

Why buy art?
Art has been long held as a thing of beauty and as such has provided happiness to many people, but as technology is improving, scientists are discovering just how much of an impact fine art can make. In a recent study, people underwent brain scans while being shown a series of 30 paintings by some of the world's greatest artists. The artworks they considered most beautiful increased blood flow in a certain part of the brain - by as much as 10% – the equivalent to gazing at a loved one!! What does this tell us? That art induces a feel good sensation direct to the brain, so hanging art in your home really does bring you happiness and pleasure – it's a fact!
