Advent Art is the art of Paul Kelley, a Nova Scotian artist who has lived on the South Shore for most of his life. His figurative artwork is a celebration of the female form and commanding presence in our world; and Paul’s landscape / seascape art extols the beauty that surrounds us along our Nova Scotian coast. Advent Art is not a “store front” gallery, but interested patrons are welcome to contact Paul directly to make appropriate arrangements.
