Blood Star Gallery
The Art of Susan Taylor and Frank Ducote


(posted on 26 Jun 2020)

Dear art lovers and friends of the Blood Star Gallery,

On Saturday, June 27 the continuing artists of the ART OFF THE FENCE Show and Sale will be placing Part II of the show - two or three  pieces of their new work, in the display case in front of Talisman Books at the Penders' Driftwood Centre. In a normal year, we would each show twelve or fifteen pieces at our annual outdoor show in mid-July. This pandemic year we'll change the show in the display case and online each week for six weeks. If you're not going to be on the Penders this summer you'll be able to see our work on Facebook and Instagram at Art Off the Fence.


This week Frank and Susan will be showing the following work.

A Timely Raven, painted wood and antique watch parts by Frank Ducote

Leonardo, painted wood and copper wire by Frank Ducote

Home III, ink, watercolour and graphite by Susan Taylor

The Importance of Plankton VI, triptych, acrylic and resin on wood cradles by Susan Taylor

If you missed Part I of this year's show, The Bee Project, you can still see it online at where it's receiving international exposure.

As for our own small gallery, weather permitting, we are displaying our work outside each day 11 am to 4 pm and ask our visitors to practise social distancing. Because the weather can be surprisingly different between North and South Pender Islands, we suggest you text or call 778 891 9437 to confirm that we're open. We'd love to see you!

We urge you to remain socially responsible and respectful of others as you enjoy the summer months.

Our best to you,

Susan and Frank
