Research & Research Visits

J. P. Drake, detail, 1994.258

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia welcomes researchers interested in finding out more about particular artists and the artworks in the Gallery's Permanent Collection. The Gallery maintains files on all the artists in the collection.

At the moment, detailed research can only be conducted on-site, however, a good starting point for all research is through Artefacts Canada, which contains full records for the entire Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Permanent Collection.

Gallery staff are happy to accommodate reasonable amounts of preliminary research on behalf of researchers, as well as formal research visits. Research requests that require excessive amounts of staff time will be charged a curatorial fee.
