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, 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.

Rock Show: At the intersection of art + music
July 11 - September 28, 2014
With a local spin, this group exhibition delves into the influence of music as subject and subculture on contemporary visual artists and their art making through a sampling of works from the Permanent Collection complemented by key loans from several artists with ties to the region.

Buoys and Gulls
Open: June 20, 2014
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
Open: June 20, 2014
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.
