Jan Davison’s paintings of Halifax businesses featured in art scavenger hunt

Nova Scotia artist Jan Davison has always been fascinated with painting buildings. – Contributed ‘Not just a painting of a place’ A local artist’s work of well-known Halifax businesses will be housed in the places featured in her work. Jan Davison paints her favourite local businesses and she’s exhibited much of her work at Argyle Fine Art for the last 19 years. But Adriana Afford, the gallery’s owner, says she decided to create a scavenger hunt of sorts, placing Davison’s work in the featured businesses and displaying them for new crowds to appreciate. “I thought they should be seen in the places that inspired them,” Afford says. “We reached out to the business owners and they were delighted to take part. She only paints the places she really loves. It’s genuine.” Afford says Davison’s artwork is still being placed in various businesses. It’s hoped all the works will be in place by the end of the summer. So far, Davison’s work can be found at the Old Apothecary on Barrington Street, Rousseau Chocolatier on South Street, The Brown Hound Public House on Agricola Street, and Boxing Rock Brewery in Shelburne. All of the paintings will be available to purchase. […]
