This event begins on Oct 01, 2021 and ends on Oct 24, 2021
As parents, we often hear our children express a desire to go to “Nan’s house” for a visit. These requests often stir up memories of our own childhood visits to relatives, past and present, and it’s these memories that were our inspiration.
This 8 piece exhibit is a chronological story of a weekend visit to “Nan’s House”. The pieces depict rural NL, past and present. We used various techniques in its creation including quilting, painting, and wood carving. Reclaimed wood and driftwood are intertwined to create our own unique style.
We hope you enjoy the exhibit and that “Nan’s House” will help rekindle some of your favourite childhood memories.
Along with this special exhibition, we will be showcasing 10-15 of our regularly available pieces.
The Whites’ Emporium was created on a whim in September, 2019. An overflowing collection of sea glass, combined with artistic desire, lead to the creation of a small product line. Positive feedback and increased sales encouraged further development using different mediums—mainly driftwood, canvas and acrylic paint. Our breakthrough piece “The Mother”, a driftwood Humpback mother and calf, was introduced in May, 2020, and helped our company grow exponentially throughout the summer. Our family relocated to Twillingate in September 2020, and after deciding to make The Whites’ Emporium our primary career, we have not looked back. Our pieces since then have been numerous, and we have used many different mediums to create our wall art. Although known primarily for our Humpback whales, we have been quite busy expanding our portfolio, which is focused mainly on common NL themes. We look forward to the future, as we continue to express our creativity and to cement our signature mixed-media style.
