    Handa Art: Handa Art - Metis Artist Anette Campbell

    by jamiesno Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Labrador region has many great artist and one of them is Annette Campbell Janes is a Labrador Metis artist. Her studio is located in her remote Northern cabin in western Labrador. It is here, surrounded by the magnificent flora wildlife, and northern phenomena, such as the awe inspiring northern lights, that Annette creates her skillfully rendered artwork.

    It is from these original works that Annette produces her own art cards and prints in various sizes, using lightfast, as well as, archival and lightfast art papers, canvas and pigments. This process ensures that these true giclee reproductions, including the cards, maintain the highest quality images from 25 up to 200 years.

    The more I travel throughout Labrador the more local crafts I am starting to appreciate and collect from the different regions.

    I hope you enjoy and buy some as well!

    Bard Wood: Feature Artist - Barb Wood

    by jamiesno Written Nov 18, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I thought here I would feature some more of Labrador's arts community. The peice featured in this picture is by Barb Wood. It is the Talking Stick.

    What to buy: The talking stick has been used for centuries by many American Indian tribes as a means of just and impartial hearing. The talking stick was commonly used in council circles to designate who had the right to speak. When matters of great concern came before the council, the leading elder would old the talking stick and begin the discussion. When he finished what he had to say he would hold out the talking stick, and whoever wished to speak after him would take it. In this manner teh stick was passed from one individual to another until all who wished to speak had done so. The stick was then passed back to teh leading elder for safe keeping.

    Some tribes used a talking feather instead of a talking stick. Other tribes might have a peace pipe, a wampum belt, a sacred shell, or some other object by which they designate the right to speak. Whatever the object, it carries respect for free speech and assured the speaker he has the freedom and power to say what is in his heart without fear of reprisal or humiliation.

    Moulder of Dreams: Moulder of Dreams!

    by jamiesno Updated Jun 29, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moulder of Dreams is a community-supported project in Port Hope Simpson to incorporate disabled residents into the workplace. The community has a population of approximately 600 people. About 10% of this population are affected with a severe handicap recognized as "Myotonic Dystrophy" that affects the nervous and muscular system in individuals.

    In looking for ways to make this responsibility a reality and in connection with Mr. Waymare Harish, an occupational therapist, it was recommended that the creation of a Pottery Industry could meet the therapeutic/medical needs of these individuals.

    With tremendous support from various funding agencies, the pottery program became a reality for six Myotonic individuals, two challenging needs individuals, a short-term instructor, and a Coordinator to oversee the project.

    Their mandate is to implement a pottery training course that will embrace skill development, provide meaningful employment, and ultimately lead to business development that will see the marketing of the pottery products outside the area utilizing the handicapped logo.

    A visit here will not only allow you an opportunity to appreciate the finished pieces, or view the art of pottery-making in action, but you share in the feeling of unity as these myotonic and challenging-needs participants give life to their mounds of clay with their own special touch.

    What to buy: I recommend buying the mugs and bowls are all very nice.

    The Weavery: Water street in St. John's

    by chinagirl Updated Jun 25, 2003

    This shop sells a variety of local crafts and other beautiful things for the house. Also some very nice T-shirts and sweats with cute Newfoundland logos.
    I especially liked the paintings (very colourful, and showing all of Newfoundland's landscapes).
    Another great shop was the Living Planet - they sell t-shirts with various original designs - it's in Duckworth Street (close to the road that goes up to Signal Hill)
