(Thursday, April 4/2002)-- Mayor Peter Kelly and District 5 Councillor Harry McInroy will be on hand at Halifax Hall tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. to receive a collection of paintings by Eastern Passage artist Clyde Henneberry.

The paintings will be on display to the public in City Hall for the next few months. The showing is in recognition of the many artists who live in small communities throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Mr. Henneberry, now in his 70s, lived in Eastern Passage all his life. He's always worked on the water, building wharves, working on boats and fishing. In later years, he owned and operated a lobster pound.

As a child, Mr. Henneberry was always interested in sketching, but by age 15 he had to go to work and was no longer able to follow his hobby. He gave up his business when he was in his 60s to stay home and care for his wife, who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. To pass the time, he took up painting. His prints are now being bought world-wide and he is widely recognized as an artist of exceptional talent.
