AGNS Re-Opens

January 22, 2009
The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has re-opened to the public however Flight Dreams will remain grounded until the weekend. The AGNS had been closed this week due to ground water damage that seeped into the Gallery space. No artwork was damaged and as a precaution, the Flight Dreams exhibition was removed to further protect the art during the assessment and cleaning phases.

Ray Cronin, Director and CEO notes, "On behalf of the Board of Governors I would like to thank everyone involved with their efforts to re-open the Gallery. Everyone at Transportation, Infrastructure Renewal worked around the clock to identify the problem and work on solutions to allow the AGNS to re-open. All of the Gallery's staff worked with great diligence and professionalism to ensure the safety of the Province's AGNS collection. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to the AGNS"

Programs that were planned for this weekend have been postponed and the will be rescheduled for future dates. Flight Dreams remains on view until March 1 and Joe Fafard closes on February 8, 2009. The AGNS thanks everyone for their support and concern during this past week.
