Dawn Oman Art Gallery


I had no idea in the pouring rain what I was in for when I entered Dawn Oman’s gallery.  We drove up to her door in Bridgetown Nova Scotia ran from the car to her door and were soaked.  “Do I have drowned rats at my door?” she said, laughing.  We said yes.

My expectations were nil; I was checking out a gallery that I was told was cool.

Well, it was a gallery/home/former church/concert hall.  I had not realized it was a decommissioned United Church with intact stained glass.  Because Dawn is First Nations from Yellowknife with European heritage thrown in, the “gallery” was a cross cultural extravaganza. 

The works are fascinating; I picked up a set of greeting cards, but there was so much in there to enjoy.

But the best part was meeting Dawn herself.
