Exhibitions and Events

Now on view

RAM: Rethinking Art & Machine
January 17 - March 22, 2015
RAM is a group exhibition that explores the origins and evolutions of new media art.

Eleanor King: Dark Utopian
January 17 - March 20, 201
Nova Scotia artist Eleanor King finds inspiration in the everyday – those deceptively mundane, overlooked, and understated aspects of contemporary life. Her work is frequently site-specific, responding to places or situations using provisional means.

Mary Pratt
October 3, 2014 to March 1, 2015
Renowned Newfoundland and Labrador artist Mary Pratt celebrated in a 50-year retrospective touring exhibition.

4th Wall: Justice, Art & Youth
September 12, 2014 - January 25, 2015
This new exhibition gives a unprecedented platform to over 60 young Nova Scotian artists, aged 15 to 30, to share their unique perspective on issues pertaining to justice in Canada, including the rehabilitation of inmates, crime prevention, Indian Residential Schools, gender-based violence, and discrimination.

Collective Remembrance Propaganda Posters from the Great War
August 30, 2014 - March 22, 2015
A century later, propaganda posters from the First World War – designed to  mobilize an army, persuade Canadians that support for the war was just and noble, inspire them to exercise thrift, and to lend the government their own money to pay for the war – will provide visitors with an opportunity to pull aside the curtain of time and to experience an earlier generation’s feelings, fears, and hopes about the first truly global conflict.

Buoys and Gulls
Opened June 20, 2014 (ongoing)
Buoys and gulls, dinghies and dories… the imagery of the ocean and its shores has served as subject and muse to folk artists in Atlantic Canada for generations. This selection of whimsical and sometimes humorous works from the Permanent Collection reflects this region’s cultural heritage and ties to the sea.

The Sadowskis
Opened June 20, 2014 (ongoing)
Between 1949 and 1952 Nova Scotia’s craft scene enjoyed an infusion of European Modernist art sensibilities via Krystyna Sadowska (1912-1994) and her husband Konrad Sadowski (1902-1960) who moved to Halifax to teach at the Provincially-funded Handcraft Centre. The Sadowskis settled in Indian Harbour where they converted an old house into a studio and home, teaching and running a successful roadside pottery business. It was a circuitous route that led the Sadowskis to Nova Scotia.

Shifting Ground
Charting the changing currents in contemporary Aboriginal art across Canada as seen through the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Permanent Collection, this exhibition takes a circuitous route that begins here, on the East Coast, and finds its way to the Arctic.

Maud Lewis Gallery
Marvel at the numerous paintings that are part of the Gallery's collection as well as the charming and fully restored home of this beloved Nova Scotian folk artist.
