Our Next Live Event:
This Nova Scotia made movie takes place in a pair of dories lost at sea. The beauty and the brutality of the ocean accompany them. As comrades they journey through emotional turmoil of fear, anger, laughter and eventually, insight and transcendence. In their struggle to survive they come to realize it is not only the ocean they must conquer, it is themselves that they need to come to terms with. Award winning writer and filmmaker Shandi Mitchell has created with this film a poignant tribute to the lives of fishermen.

Anyone can take part in our Anonymous Art Show.
The Osprey is calling on all artists and would-be artists to take part in a fun art project and have their work displayed in the Osprey’s gallery.
Organizers for The Anonymous Art Show at the Osprey are shooting for 100 paintings by budding, as well as established artists and just anyone who’d like to give it a try.
Here’s how it works. For the $10 entry fee, the Osprey will supply two six-inch square canvases to each artist. All the canvases are the same size. The canvases can be purchased at the Osprey, Tuesday & Thursdays, 10 am to 4:30 pm (otherwise by appointment – just contact us and we’ll arrange it).
The artist will buy as many pairs of canvases as they’d like, create paintings in oils, acrylic or mixed media, and return them to the Osprey on Tuesday, November 26. Some painters might want to put canvases together to create diptychs or triptychs.
Painters can sign their work, but only on the back. The works will be exhibited together and in no particular order. In other words, all the works are presented to the public anonymously.
The exhibition of these works of art will open on Friday, November 29 at 7 pm just before the Basement Theatre Christmas show. All the works will go on sale at that time. Every painting will sell for the same price of $25.
This event is a fundraiser for the Osprey. The artist will receive $10 for each painting sold. All unsold works will be returned to the artists.
The Anonymous Art Show will be open from November 29 to December 13. The Osprey is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 am to 4:30 pm. To register for The Anonymous Art Show and pick up canvases, call the Osprey at 875-2359 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
