Gallery / Exhibit

Join us for the official opening of the Concrete House for the summer of 2022. Our sculpture garden will feature the much anticipated addition of the Apple Obscura by Onya Hogan Finlay. Onya (she/ her) is an interdisciplinary artist and co-founder of OK Sea Salt based in Miꞌkmaꞌki / Nova Scotia, Canada.

We are thrilled to be the site of her installation Apple Obscura a seasonal interactive sculpture on the grounds of the Charles Macdonald Concrete Museum (Centreville, NS, Canada). Visitors are invited to engage with the outdoor sculpture and peer through the suspended inflatable apple-shaped camera obscura to experience an upside-down view of their surroundings. The sculptural piece also features a handmade 18' apple ladder with mended ash splint basket, providing the support for a live grapevine to grow. Apple Obscura is part of Onya's ongoing research and creation for Apples & Oranges: Unearthing the Roots of Introduced Fruit to North America.
Apple Obscura was co-designed with Pneuhaus and was created in collaboration and consultation with Earl Smith and Carolyn Landry.

The project acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Arts Nova Scotia, Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts, and in-kind donations from The Charles Macdonald House of Centreville Society, Atlantex Creative Works, Noggins Corner Farm, Foote’s Farm Market, and Baked Inn Bakery and Eatery.
