A gorgeous piece for the New Year by STEVEN RHUDE

"The objective of achieving balance in life is constantly being assessed owing to our knowledge of opposing forces. From family, friends, to community. The human body, diet, the life cycle - existence and mortality; the idea of spirit. Our place in the Maritimes, church, state, and equality. Relationships, close or long distance, personal or political, are forever subject to the vicissitude's of external and internal forces. Forever being analyzed, scrutinized, and catagorized." Steven Rhude

Joseph Plaskett (1918 - 2014)

Joseph Plaskett was a national treasure in the Canadian art world and a wonderful friend. Joe died in his home on September 21, 2014.
Joe will be remembered for his artistic vision, his kindness, optimism and legendary generosity, the influence he has had on the Canadian art world and farther afield, and in his many artistic gifts - all of which were presented in his most humble way.
His legacy will live on in his exquisite body of work, in the Plaskett Foundation and in the huge circle of people who own his work and who were blessed by his friendship. We will miss him dearly.

Molly Lamb Bobak (1920 - 2014)

Gallery 78 and its many friends and patrons are very saddened by the passing of MOLLY LAMB BOBAK.
She was legendary in her artwork, her generosity, her stories, her kindness, her intelligence, her humour, her mentoring and
in how fully and completely she lived her life.
How beautifully said by one of the many collectors of her work "Any good I pass along in no small way has to do with Molly's inspiration."
Molly has been been a blessing, a rare gift in the art world, a true friend and we will miss her very much.
