October Creative Pub Recap

For those of you who missed the creative pub last week, we thought we would post a little recap! Sharing is caring and all that. October’s creative pub ended up being one of those spectacular events where we had a little bit of everything.

We’re fortunate to have a mix of enthusiasts, students and professionals at our events, and some of Halifax’s most established show up to hang out for drinks and working on projects. James White was working on some Groot drawings. It was nice to catch up with him, but if you missed out then you can see him speaking at Collide this week!

Amber Solberg paints on vinyal

Amber Solberg is another artist around town that has been mentioned before. She was back with another thrilling new idea: painting with a Vinyl record as her canvas. She was working with a variety of materials and like always, had a clever way to keep them with her. This week was in a narrow box that perfectly fit her materials.

Paige Sawler came with felt heart ornaments. Paige is a graduate of the NSCC Graphic Design course who has been busy working freelance with The Coast and rocking her #yearofthecreative project.

We don’t only have visual artists attending this event – Jordan Dickie, a top bar tender who serves creative beverages, is the man behind Viral Barman blog. He was a wonderful new addition to the group, and spent a lot of time getting to know all the talented individuals around the bar.

So if you did miss out on the event Tuesday, then please don’t worry. This week we have Get Shit Done being held on Thursday at the Humani-T cafe on South Park Street. Hope to see everyone out there, so we can take over as much of the cafe as we did at Foggy Goggle!

Special thanks to Chris Hemsworth ( who’s successful Heritage Moments show continues at the Argyle Fine Art Gallery this month) for the following tweet from the event:

We had a lot of illustrators join us this month as well, blowing us away with their inspiring talent. Here are some of the highlights (or as we like to call them ‘those times we put our drinks down long enough to take some pictures’):
