September 19: Family Sunday, Artist Talk on WaveUp

September 16, 2010 – HALIFAX, NS – The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is excited to kick off the fall season of its popular Family Sundays on September 19. The Gallery hosts these inspiring afternoons of in-studio activities one Sunday a month.

This weekend's Family Sunday, titled Spotlight, is based on the Sobey Art Award: 2010 Atlantic Long List installation that is currently on view at the Gallery. This exhibition highlights the excellence of artistic production in the Atlantic Region through the diverse practices of the contemporary artists who, through various connections, identify themselves as Atlantic Canadian.

Family Sunday: Spotlight is a drop-in format running from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm with the Gallery supplying all materials. Children must be accompanied by an adult but pre-registration is not required.

Artist Talk with Stephen Kelly
To complement the Family Sunday event, Halifax artist Stephen Kelly will also be on-hand giving a talk on his current exhibition, Open Tuning (WaveUp), from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm. Using speakers mounted on the gallery walls and suspended from the ceiling, WaveUp combines electronic and sculptural elements to create an interactive work that mimics buoys at sea responding to weather and climactic conditions in real-time.

Check the Events Calendar for dates and details about other upcoming Family Sundays and the many public programs taking place at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia this fall.
