2015 NOCTURNE: ART AT NIGHT
Halifax, Nova Scotia B3J1V9 Canada
Join us for an illuminating evening at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s Nocturne offering, Art at Night 2015. Friends, families and art-lovers of all ages are invited to roll up their sleeves for hands-on activities facilitated by artists in our studios, or to stroll through up to 7 floors filled with awe-inspiring works, many which were recently added to the Gallery’s walls and spaces – all free of charge. You’ll also have the chance to fill out a ballot to win one of five free family memberships (already a member? You’ll get an additional year added to your membership if your name is drawn). Your Gallery is alive with art and activities – join us to discover these and the wide array of contemporary and historical exhibitions currently on view:
Maud Lewis Painted House: the final, fully restored house is on permanent display – a favourite with families and lovers of Nova Scotian folk art
Terroir: A Nova Scotia Retrospective: borrowing heavily from the language of wine, this three-part exhibition will look at regional artistic production through the culture from which it emerges
2015 Sobey Art Award: provides the chance to review the country’s artistic output through the specific lens of shortlisted Award nominees.
Shifting Ground: charting the changing currents in contemporary Aboriginal art across Canada as seen through the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Permanent Collection
Spring in Cambridge: The Visionary Drawings of John Devlin: a collection of intricate drawings of a re-invented world based on hidden codes, symbols and ratios of an imagined island in Nova Scotia
… made by the artist … greeting cards and other ephemera: during the early twentieth century, perhaps because most artists were perpetually short of money, many created their own greeting cards for friends and colleagues, or for sale – an interesting glimpse into time-gone-by
Grace Nickel – Devastatus Rememorari: a memorial to Point Pleasant Park, this is an invitation to pause to remember our own personal experiences with the hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters that surprise us occasionally with their brute force
Nova Scotia Spotlight: Janice Leonard: Janice Leonard was educated at NSCAD University. Her work has been shown at galleries across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Autism Arts: artworks created by participants in the Autism Arts classes throughout the year Buoys and Gulls: this selection of whimsical and sometimes humorous works from the Permanent Collection reflects this region’s cultural heritage and ties to the sea
… and more!
