Beautiful picturesque evening in Halibut Cove/
Fine art is a major industry in this community. The census lists only 35 residents, but there are 17 artists and three galleries (I suspect the population is several times this in the summer).
The summer-only Halibut Cove's Experience Fine Art Gallery is first past the farm on the boardwalk, on pilings above the water. The airy room contains works by Halibut Cove artists only.
Farther on, Diana Tillion, who, with her husband, Clem, pioneered the community, opened "The Cove Gallery" and studio to guests. She worked almost exclusively in octopus ink, painstakingly extracted with a hypodermic needle.
