"Erotic Landscapes showcases pieces that are related to femininity, beauty and power. Women and femininity have always remained a strong focus and inspiration for my work. This series is an homage to the feminine. For me, the feminine embodies creativity, protection, eroticism,sensuality and wisdom. This show includes a variety of media, including oil painting, water colour, drawings, cyanotype, original prints, jewellery and sculpture. My curiosity drives me to explore new media and new forms of expressing myself."

Carlos Gomez is a Colombian artist that specializes in printmaking, drawing and painting. He studied fine arts in Colombia and Canada and completed a diploma in lost wax techniques in Mexico. He has had several group and solo shows in these countries. Carlos currently splits his time between his printmaking studio in Colombia and painting in Dartmouth, NS in the company of his beautiful wife and dogs. In 2016 he was the recipient of the Main and Station Paper Award and has completed various artist residencies.

Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour

Media artist Leola LeBlanc, in collaboration with local youth, created Departures: The Geary Street Cemetery Interactive Media Tour, an interactive on-line map and interactive walking tour of the Geary Street Cemetery that is accessible to youth and the public. The tour and map will be incorporated into curriculum created for Elementary, Junior High and High School students in collaboration with Alderney Landing’s Bluenose Ghosts Festival. (approx. 145 schools will be invited to participate)

The project has created an interactive map and tour filled with creative information relating to the historical significance of the Geary Street Cemetery.

Unfortunately, at this time the platform this tour was created on no longer exists. We are looking into an alternative solution. Thank you for your patience.
