An el­e­ment of fun was part of the launch of Over­size Mat­ters on Nov. 3 at the AGNS Yar­mouth gallery.

Vis­i­tors viewed large works by Brian Porter, Dan Earle, Travis Doyle, David Gor­man and An­dre Haines in the Com­mu­nity Room up­stairs.

Dur­ing the evening, guests were en­cour­aged to don a sup­plied painter’s shirt and add them­selves to a paint­ing that artist An­dre Haines started ear­lier in the evening.

Watch­ing the work of bud­ding painters pro­vided some hi­lar­ity, while oth­ers sam­pled ap­pe­tiz­ers pre­pared by Chef War­ren Par­nell, sig­na­ture cock­tails and live mu­sic by vo­cal­ist Barb Gillis.

Ticket sales raised funds for the Friends of the Yar­mouth Art Gallery.

The Friends is a vol­un­teer ad­vi­sory group that ar­ranges for com­mu­nity pro­gram­ming,

work­shops/sem­i­nars and events at the gallery. The Over­size Mat­ters launch is one of four Com­mu­nity Cul­ture & Cock­tail events that the Friends host an­nu­ally.

A visi­tor ex­am­ines the work of artist Travis Doyle.
