THE GALLERY ANNOUNCES ARTISTS IN UPCOMING TERROIR: A NOVA SCOTIA SURVEY EXHIBITION

EXHIBITION TO SHOWCASE THE PROVINCE’S RICH VISUAL CULTURE

Halifax, April 12, 2016—Following a call to submissions and juried process, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has revealed the list of artists selected for its upcoming Terroir: a Nova Scotia Survey exhibition, opening on June 25, 2016.

From the Latin “terre,” meaning land, terroir is defined as the set of special characteristics that the geography, geology, and climate of a certain place express in certain agricultural products, most notably wine. Loosely translated, terroir is a “sense of place,” and the exhibition seeks to ambitiously unearth and celebrate the unique flavor of Nova Scotian’s very own terroir.

The one-of-a-kind art competition engaged artists across the province by inviting the submission of works in a diversity of artistic mediums, with no demographic or age restrictions. The process will culminate in showcasing contemporary works by the 29 selected artists—acclaimed and emerging—and provide the public with an opportunity to engage with Nova Scotia’s rich visual culture.

The selection panel consisted of David Diviney, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Bruce Johnson, Independent Curator, and Sarah Fillmore, Chief Curator, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
