Sign Up for Spring Workshops

VANS Spring 2016 professional development workshop series for artists will feature topics including Grant Writing, Pricing Your Work, Making Time to Make Art, Documenting Your Work, and Estate Planning for Artsists. Running May to June in Halifax, Annapolis Royal and Tatamagouche, the workshops will feature the professional expertise of Katie Belcher, Stacey Cornelius, Steve Farmer, Sarah Maloney, and George Clarke.

In addition, VANS is organizing free Peer to Peer Discussions in Halifax, Annapolis Royal, and Tatamagouche, about Earning Opportunities for Artists. These discussion sessions are an opportunity for artists to gather together in an informal setting to share tips, tricks and strategies for earning money through their art and experience. These sessions are also a chance for artists to connect with their fellow community members, and identify unique earning opportunities in their region.

Visit www.visualarts.ns.ca/programs/vans-workshops/ for details on workshop topics, registration, schedules, and becoming a VANS member to access discounts on workshop fees along with programs serving visual artists.

VANS’ Workshop Series covers a diversity of topics across commercial and public sectors, in an effort to keep members and visual artists informed of best professional practices in the visual arts. In offering these workshops, VANS supports the visual arts in Nova Scotia by keeping artists apprised of methods and opportunities to develop artistically and professionally.

ViewPoint Gallery’s May Exhibition

ViewPoint Gallery May 2016 exhibition

Dancer/Dance:
Making Sense of Pictures

a member solo show by Allan Neilsen

NEILSEN_ credit only 300dpi MAL


Exhibition Running: May 4 – 29, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 5, 6 – 8 pm
Artist Talk:
Sunday, May 15, 2pm

Dancer / Dance is intended to provoke viewers to consider the relationship between word and image as they attempt to read photographs in gallery settings, in particular, but also in everyday contexts. Like the dancer and the dance, image and word are inextricably joined in the interpretive process. Despite the often explicit or literal content of these images, we always require the word to help us come to our understandings of them.  “Even the uncaptioned image framed and isolated on a gallery wall, is invaded by language when it is looked at” (Victor Burgin, 1982).  

Allan Neilsen is a photographic artist and member of ViewPoint Gallery of Contemporary Photography in Halifax ,Nova Scotia.
