Noteworthy Artists That Aren’t Regularly Available To Our Gallery

Down To Earth Art Gallery has or have had original paintings by a truly impressive list of artists. This list is outside of the artists that we exhibited regularly or periodically over our 22 years. Sometimes it has only been one painting by a particular artist, other times we have been fortunate enough to have multiple pieces by the same artist. All are very collectible, most come to us from people downsizing their lives, or clients simply changing up their private collections. We always require good provenance with any artwork so our customers can be confident with their purchases. The list is always changing on our Noteworthy section of our website, so check it out often. If you are looking for a particular artist’s work, let us know, we’ll keep an eye out there for you. The paintings don’t always make it to our website, sometimes they are spoken for as soon as we get them.

Joseph Purcell Joseph Purcell, born in Halifax, 1927 - 2017, received his art training at the Nova Scotia College of Art. Early in his career he developed a style of his own with dramatic use of light and composition. At the age of 18 he completed three 18 foot murals for Canadian National hotels and at 23 won the O’Keefe Art Award, a national competition. In the same year he was chosen to interpret Halifax for the Seagrams Collection, “Cities of Canada,” which toured major capital cities of the world. In more recent years, Joseph completed a major collection of on-the-spot paintings of gold mines of Nova Scotia, entitled the Seabright Collection, which now hangs at the Museum of Industry in Stellarton, NS. Joseph was privileged to go out on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland with the fishermen of Lunenburg, painting them at work in the years when many schooners plied out of that port. He is still captivated by the sea, ships and the spirit that made the Atlantic fisheries flourish. In his landscapes and seascapes Joseph devoted his full effort to an art that reflects the Atlantic scene. Joseph Purcell’s work has hung in major galleries of Canada, the United States and England. His murals adorn numerous public buildings, historic churches and naval establishments in Canada. Joseph and his wife Tela, an artist also, resided in Lunenburg, NS.
