We’re going to start to release a weekly blog post to highlight what we’ve been featuring on our social media platforms. Hopefully, it will serve as a quick way for those who don’t always see our daily posts to still be able to see what has been catching our eye!
This week we’ve featured three local artists - Marla Benton, Andrea Crouse, and Alex MacAskill of Midnight Oil Print & Design.
We’ve been super smitten with Marla Benton’s fun & functional polka dot mugs this week. They’re a great choice if you’re looking for a new favourite mug for yourself, or their complementary colours also work well paired up as a fantastic wedding gift!
It’s easy to see the amount of work and time that goes into each of Andrea Crouse’s paper collage designs, and her newest addition of the Cornwallis Street Row-house is no exception to this! Andrea’s work is a great way to highlight some of the memorable architecture of Halifax. It works well as a subtle souvenir of a trip to the Maritimes, or to send some nostalgia to a Haligonian who now lives elsewhere. Inkwell carries her work in 8x10” prints and 5x7” cards and a selection are available in our online store.
Alex MacAskill of Midnight Oil has returned with his Nova Scotia Map Print & his iconic house hippo print, available in-store and online. He also has brought in his new print that showcases the stunning visual history of the sneaker! All three featured prints are 16x20” in size.
