A Is For Art, a holistic platform for Nova Scotian artisans. From workshops and shows, to galleries and art news

A Is For Art, a holistic platform for Nova Scotian artisans. From workshops and shows, to galleries and art news, A Is For Art is committed to providing a one stop shop for what’s what in the local art community. Our aim is to encourage the continued growth and development of local arts and culture.

There are so many associations and opportunities for art and design that you can get caught up in just searching for what is available to you. We strive to bridge that gap and provide a base where you can promote your own event, look at what others are doing, and see what might be available to you as a local artist.

Part of our commitment will be to promote local artists, each month there will be a new featured artist. This showcase is to provide exposure and support for artists and celebrate the beauty of our art community. If you would like to be a part of that please contact us and let us know.

To register an event please visit the event submission page. Please note that these events should be art related and in Nova Scotia – they can be anything from a lecture and workshop to an exhibit or demonstration and will be listed according to the date they are being held.

Your art community is only as strong as what you put into it – so please help us grow:) If you have an association, or gallery or event that you believe should be listed here please contact us and let us know.

Announcing the launch of Maritime Art Info!

I’m pleased to announce the launch of Maritime Art Info! I was so sad when I read that the Maritime Art List would be closing down; it’s such a valuable resource for our area (I’m an artist living and working in the valley). The more I thought about it the more I thought I could find a way to build a replacement (the service used by Maritime Art List is shutting down so I had to figure out a new option). It took longer than I expected, and was more of a headache than I expected, but it’s working :-) It’s not exactly the same as the Art List, but it’s as close as I could get it to be. There is a small fee to receive the daily emails – every provider I could find charged money so I need the fee to cover costs. It’s very reasonable, and you can choose the amount you’d like to pay. It’s free to list on the website so please sign up and post your news and events! There is also an instruction guide if you’re not very techy :o) If there is another aspect to the service that you think would be a good addition please let me know – info@maritimeartinfo.com

I would love for this to provide the same service as the Art List has, but for that I need the community to come with me. Will you come? :o)
