Go see artists shortlisted for the Mayor's Award

City hall art exhibition open every Wednesday night 7-9pm and runs until June 17.

On Monday, there was an opening reception in City Hall from 5-7pm for the artists shortlisted for the first Mayor's Award of Distinction in Contemporary Visual Art. You can see the show every Wednesday night from 7-9pm through June 17 (except for May 6). After the show, works from the winner and two honourable mentions will be purchased as part of HRM's permanent art collection.

Here's a sample of work from the shortlist. It's interesting that the work is predominantly painting, with the exception of Hannah Minzloff's transit photography, but as you can see, the work is dramatically different in style and theme.
