Meet your Hosts, Artists Tom Alway and Peter Blais
Originally from Massachusetts, Tom Alway has traveled and studied extensively before settling in to Nova Scotia in 1997. As an artist, Tom draws his inspiration from the landscape around him. He paints realistically exploring the play of light and shade, sometimes with a surrealistic bent. He paints to give a sense of what is in front of the canvas, drawing the viewer into the picture. He paints in acrylics and has begun to use other media (e.g. modelling paste) to provide texture to paintings. He has created several series of pictures, one featuring windows and another foundations. And just for something different Tom has begun painting what he calls fun art.
With an extensive and acclaimed background in Canadian Theatre, Peter has always had a fondness of fibre art. In 1997, he moved to Mahone Bay, NS, and returned to his career as a visual artist, Blais began to work with paint on canvas as well as exploring the traditions of Nova Scotia folk art in a number of forms – from furniture to sculpture. Since 2005, he has shown at annual Nova Scotia Folk art Festival in Lunenburg – the premiere juried event for maritime folk art.
His acrylics on canvas as well as his folk art and one-of-a-kind furniture pieces.
In 1997 Tom and Peter forged a partnership that led to the opening of the MARITIME PAINTED SALTBOX GALLERY in Petite Riviere, Lunenburg Co, Nova Scotia.
