"This historic exhibition 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."
