NEWS RELEASE: Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Unveils 2016/17 Exhibitions



Halifax, May 18, 2016—The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia announced its 2016-2017 exhibition program today at the Gallery’s Halifax location, presenting an excellent roster of established and emerging artists in solo and group exhibitions in Halifax and Yarmouth.

The 2016-17 program will present a wide range of exceptional art through a Nova Scotian lens—a recurring theme for the upcoming year. With an offering of nearly 20 exhibitions, the year will feature some of Atlantic Canada’s and the country’s greatest visual artists through exhibitions like Terroir: a Nova Scotia Survey, which will showcase ambitious works by 29 artists unearthing the province’s rich visual culture, as well as a solo exhibition, The Nature of Nature, offering a comprehensive look into New Brunswick-based Thaddeus Holownia’s photographic practice to date. Upcoming programming will also continue to offer dazzling evening entertainment such as ArtParty, the Gallery’s nightclub-themed event presented by TD.  In addition to innovative modern and contemporary exhibitions, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will offer options such as Confederation – 150 years: 23 Prime Ministers, a survey of prime-ministerial portraits leading up to the sesquicentennial of Confederation, and an exhibition of works by Harold Edgerton, internationally recognized for his contribution to the transformation of the photographic medium. The Gallery will also continue to present meaningful exhibitions at its Yarmouth location, including Emily Falencki’s powerful memorial portraits of missing persons; The Path We Share, with contemporary works by four First Nations artists; and John Devlin: Spring in Cambridge, featuring drawings by a Nova Scotian artist charting the physical, emotional and spiritual world from a unique perspective.

“It will be a truly memorable year for new gallery-goers and longtime members alike. We will be presenting incredible works by some of the most exciting artists currently producing works in Atlantic Canada,” said Sarah Fillmore. “On this International Museum Day, I am delighted to present both contemporary and historical exhibitions reflecting the diversity our audiences have come to expect.”

Already on view this season is the masterful solo exhibition, Mitch Mitchell: I Will Meet You in the Sun, a surprising and poignant interpretation of the artist’s family history through large-scale print installation. Also in Halifax, In the Artists’ Footsteps allows visitors to discover the city’s fascinating art history through an exhibition and self-guided walking tour, including a map with milestone locations. Another recently-opened exhibition, 4th Wall: Justice, Art & Youth, explores powerful and relevant art by youth bravely broaching social justice issues.

Adding to the line-up of exhibitions will be a variety of talks and tours with the exhibitions’ curators and artists throughout the year, with dates to be unveiled regularly via the Gallery’s website.

In the coming months, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will continue to present and host an array of popular family-based options, including its Summer School of the Arts, March Break and PD Day Camp programs, which provide hands-on studio activities and explorations of the Gallery for kids with experienced arts facilitators. Once a month, the Gallery will continue to offer Family Sundays, a drop-in event in the studio inspired by its exhibitions, in Halifax and Yarmouth.

By continuing to collaborate with partners – including the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, Phoenix, Autism Nova Scotia, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia and Berkeley Residences – the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia remains a catalyst for the enhancement of public access to arts programming. Its Artful Afternoons, Autism Arts and Phoenix Youth programs will continue to provide positive programs that reflect the diversity and creativity of our communities. Throughout the entire year, the Gallery will also continue to welcome school groups to its Halifax and Yarmouth locations, and to invest in outreach initiatives such as ArtReach and ArtsSmarts, which see the Gallery partnering with the Nova Scotia Department of Education and other organizations on special workshops, events and learning activities for schools throughout the province.

The Gallery will continue to collaborate with sponsors and partners in many projects in the coming year. “The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia wishes to thank its generous corporate and community partners who continue to champion the arts alongside us in various ways, and without whom the range of exhibitions and initiatives we offer would not be possible,” said Robbie Shaw, the Gallery’s Board Chair.

Lisa Bugden, Interim Director and CEO, is enthusiastic about the upcoming year. “Sarah Fillmore and the curatorial department’s thoughtful approach to programming is apparent throughout the 2016-2017 exhibition program. The team will continue to inspire artists and audiences alike, with a special focus on celebrating the province’s rich visual culture and the great artistry on view at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.”

You may create up to 5 different images during this workshop.

You can come prepared with an image idea or spend the day experimenting with found materials with this much more direct and painterly printmaking technique. You do not need previous knowledge of printmaking to participate in this workshop. Please bring an apron or old t-shirt and any thin/flat found materials like dried leaves, thread, paper cut outs. If you can’t think of anything, not to worry, there will be materials supplied as well.
