Simultaneously, Studio 21 Fine Art Gallery and Zwicker's Art Gallery will be showcasing the work of Halifax Art Map participating artists they represent. More than 45 artists will be participating in the exhibition that runs until May 24. “The exhibition at Art Sales & Rentals Gallery this year is intended to increase both profiles and sales for participating artists,” says coordinator, Keith McPhail.
The Map, now in its 12th year, continues to build momentum. “Our distribution of print copies is increasing to 25,000,” says co-coordinator Hannah Minzloff, “due to demand and new partners who are supporting local creative enterprise – so come to the launch to find out more.” The 2013 Halifax Art Map is also found online at our website and social media portals (Facebook and Twitter) to enable participants to bring their current events and activities front and centre throughout the year to create greater interaction with users. Copies of the 2013 edition will be available at Visitor Information Centres in HRM and across Nova Scotia, as well as at participating studios, galleries, hotels, partners and other arts venues beginning in May – and at the exhibition.
