Terroir: a Nova Scotia Survey
29 artists unearth Nova Scotia’s rich visual culture in
an ambitious contemporary exhibition
June 22, 2016, HALIFAX–The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia presents Terroir: A Nova Scotia Survey, an ambitious exhibition featuring works by 29 artists working in the province, mining its history and culture, and offering a diversity of production. Artists from across the province responded to an open call, and this exhibition was built exclusively from that list of respondents. The exciting range of experienced and emerging artists make for a dynamic, engaging and diverse exploration of artistic practice. From painters, weavers, sculptors, printmakers, makers of video and installation art, hookers and beyond, Nova Scotia is home to some of the country’s best artists, this is an opportunity to showcase that talent, and unearth its roots. Taking up three floors of space, Terroir is the Gallery’s feature exhibition on its summer and fall program, and promises to offer viewers an unforgettable experience.
