Hallie Watson

Hallie creates images of her childhood home in Mono, where “life was a mysterious, fascinating, unexpected thing.”

June 15, 2010 | | Back Issues

Hallie Watson includes a narrative with each of the pastoral images of her childhood home in Mono, where “life was a mysterious, fascinating, unexpected thing.”

Hallie Watson winters in Halifax and summers in Mono. The latter is the inspiration for Gumboots and Drawing Board: Fields and Streams of Mono, an exhibition opening July 11 at Dufferin County Museum.

Over a thirty-year career, along with her interest in the natural world, Hallie has focussed on domestic subjects, those quotidian objects that “hold significant small places” in our lives and offer “a pocket of quiet calm in the whirlwind of time zooming forward.” She has a fine arts degree from Mount Allison University.
