This Friday at Saint Mary’s Boat Club, we’ll know the first recipient of The Mayor’s Emerging Artist Award--will this be Peter Kelly's last big handshake???--which will be presented at Visual Arts Nova Scotia’s fundraiser, along with several other prizes. The fundraiser sounds like hands-on fun: a collaborative night spent painting and drawing a large spontaneous art piece, inspired by a literary passage. The finished work will be on display at NSCC’s Dartmouth campus, and then it moves to the airport until next October. To get your hands dirty, call 423-4694. $15members/$35non.
