Jaye Ouellette Exhibition at J. Franklin Wright Gallery
Jaye has exhibited her work many times, through galleries in Canada and the US, including six solo shows in Toronto. She has been awarded numerous grants, through the Ontario Arts Council and the Ontario Craft Council, and has had the honor of serving as a juror for an OAC grant. Her work is included in a number of private and corporate art collections. Her commission work is extensive, most notably, the Skydome Hotel, in Toronto, and has created the annual awards for "Toronto Women in Film". She has lectured about her work both in Canada and the US. Her work and show reviews have also been featured in various art publications. Jaye worked for several years, in the film and television industry, as a 'Key Scenic Artist', in Toronto, where she gained experience applicable to her own art practice. This rekindled her interest in painting, something she continues to do today. She moved from Toronto to Nova Scotia in 2003. Ever evolving, Jaye is currently painting and creating sculpture in her studio on the ocean. "I feel very privileged to be able to live and make my art in such a beautiful place".
In this recent series of 'wave paintings', Jaye is exploring the constantly shifting patterns of light and colour of the ocean. Focusing on the ephemeral quality and kinetic energy in that frozen moment when a wave is about to break. She finds it fascinating how many elements contribute to the architecture of an individual wave, the currents, off shore and on shore winds, swells and tides. "For me a wave is like a snowflake, each one beautifully unique". Jaye first approaches a painting as a small study, where she focuses on color and composition, this then may or may not lead to a larger painting.

Farmers’ markets come in many shapes and sizes, and the Community Market starting in Port Hawkesbury is no exception. Starting Thursday, May 30th, and continuing bi-weekly into October, the market will be held at the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre from 12pm-4pm.
While this is early in the growing season, there will be a variety of products ranging from annuals, baked goods, manure, eggs, and workby craft producers. For those starting in the market business, two incubator tables will be available for those who want to work together to provide produce for the community.
It is the goal of the Port Hawkesbury Community Market to give consumers in the Strait Area an opportunity to interact directly with those who take an active role in producing the items they sell.
We aim to market products grown, made, or finished locally. Examples of products that we plan to market include: locally grown vegetables, locally raised chicken, locally caught lobster, locally made breads, cheeses, crafts,etc. The Market emphasizes farm products and food but welcomes arts and crafts of the local economy.
