Members of the Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery from right to left: Laurell Hamilton, Bob Morouney, Margaret Wiles, Harry Thurston, Charlie Atherton, Diana McIsaac, Cathy Thurston, and Melanie Landau,

  • Diana McIsaac – Diana has been painting for many years. From her palette of blues and reds she forms rich hues of purple which appear in some of her favorite works in water color, acrylics, and pastels. Diana’s paintings can be found throughout Canada, the United States, and the British Isles. She calls Seagrove, NS home, where she uses her own photography as a basis for much of her work
  • Cathy Thurston – Cathy, a photographer and painter, works in both watercolour and acrylics. She is a member of the Sackville Art Association (SAA) in New Brunswick and has exhibited her work at the Owens Art Gallery in Sackville; at the Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery; and at Atomik Café in Burgau, Portugal. 
  • Harry Thurston – Born in Yarmouth, NS he grew up on the family farm and has lived most of his life in Nova Scotia. However, as an essayist, editor, and freelance journalist, Thurston has traveled the globe, writing articles for more than thirty publications, including National Geographic, Audubon, Equinox, Harrowsmith and Canadian Geographic. He is the author of several collections of poetry and more than a dozen nonfiction books.   
  • Laurell Hamilton – Laurell was born in Saskatchewan, resided in Alberta for many years, and retired to Nova Scotia twelve years ago where she has indulged her passion for painting – exploring pastels, coloured pencil, and acrylic. Primarily self-taught, she enjoys pastel and coloured pencil but has fallen in love with acrylics. I am continually delighted and inspired by the range of creative effects that are possible with acrylics. 
  • Margaret Wiles – Margaret, born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, she received her National Diploma of Design. In recent years she taught herself watercolor painting,  has sold her work through various galleries in Halifax, taught watercolor classes, and has had her paintings displayed in various Cumberland County venues.
  • Bob Morouney – Bob Morouney began life as a foundling left with the nuns of the infamous Red Chrysanthemum Monastery in western Mongolia. Since that time he has established Hidden House Press which makes intaglio Prints: engravings, etchings, dry point, and aquatint images. In his spare time Bob also drafts The Pandemonium Diary, indulges himself in painting and producing fine porcelain pottery.
  • CAML Pottery – [Charlie Atherton & Melanie Landau] – we ‘play in clay’ across the US and Canada and have established a small studio at our home in Northport, NS. Our pieces are hand built or wheel thrown and we use a variety of glazing methods.
