From Housebuilder To Architect: C. B. Chappell’s Charlottetown Celebrated With Opening Reception at the Confederation Centre
The Confederation Centre Art Gallery is celebrating Canadian Heritage Week and the legacy of Victorian architect C. B. Chappell, one of P.E.I.’s most prolific architects. The public is invited to the official opening for the new exhibition From Housebuilder to Architect: Charles B. Chappell’s Charlottetown on Thursday February 18 in the gallery, sponsored by the City of Charlottetown. All are welcome and there is no cost to attend.
A reception with Mayor Clifford Lee will take place at 6:30 p.m., followed by an art talk at 7:30 p.m. with Exhibition Curator Harry Holman, a former provincial archivist, historian, and heritage blogger.
”The work of C. B. Chappell is all around us and has made a huge impact on the look of Charlottetown,” says Holman. “This exhibition gives a glimpse into the world of this important figure in the city’s history.”
Working in the city for a span of 50 years, Chappell and his partners have left a mark which is not always recognized. A dozen of the buildings facing Queen Square are his work as are numerous residences throughout the city. His surviving structures such as City Hall, Zion Presbyterian Church, St. Paul’s Anglican Church Hall, the old Prince Edward Island Hospital on Kensington Road, and several stores on Victoria Row, attest to the fact that Chappell has been responsible for more buildings in Charlottetown than any other architect in the city’s history and has helped define the look of the capital.
The exhibit is open, by donation, until May 1, 2016.
Robert Milner has a passion for painting and paints every day. He is an eclectic artist painting from nature in all its forms, including wildlife and landscape.
A Brush With Nature, a collection of paintings in oils, acrylic, and water colour is a partial retrospective exhibit created between 2006 and the present day.
The exhibit was created during, and inspired by, a painting trip to Yellowstone Park, using information from time spent in the conservation area, and of time spent in the City of Kawartha Lakes in Ontario.
Other images were created while living on Prince Edward Island, where Robert and his wife made their home in November 2010.
A Brush With Nature is on display at the Gallery at The Guild in Charlottetown from February 3 – 27th.
