From Our Editors

From its founding in 1908, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has brought residents the chance to see historic and contemporary art from across the province, continent, and globe. The collection—all 15,000-plus pieces of it—focuses primarily on artists with ties to Nova Scotia, including Maud Lewis, whose life story rivals her paintings in color and vibrance. The tiny house in which she lived and painted, itself a work of art, is on permanent display in Halifax, the result of joint rescue efforts from the gallery and the province.

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia stepped up its commitment to making local and international art accessible to all citizens with the 2006 opening of the Western Branch, located in Yarmouth. While the branch is still not old enough to drive or apply to art school, the building is as historic as the work it contains, complete with Corinthian flourishes and a cornerstone laid in 1912.
