Spaces and places

Young Offenders Gallery has moved spaces (2130 Gottingen, one floor down) and has some cool projects for winter.

BSide Gallery (2180 Gottingen) is really blossoming under the direction of Laura Baker-Roberts, Britt Ward, Emily Lawrence and David Figueroa.

Hermes (5682 North) has also come under new leadership, with a group of local artists and curators working together to keep the space running, including Dalhousie's Peter Dykhuis. See video below.


The Arts Abstract: This newsletter written by and for University of King's College students is a really great resource and talks about all the cool shows and event happening in the city, with a great attention to shows at NSCAD by their peers.


Shows and events

NSCAD Wearable Art Show celebrating its 25th anniversary (March 5, Pacifico, Maritime Centre, 1505 Barrington, wearableartshow.myevent.com).

John Greer: retroActive at the AGNS (April 3, 1723 Hollis).

Bridget Moser: Is This Thing On? at MSVU Art Gallery, curated by Stefan Hancherow (May 30, 166 Bedford Highway).

Shameless plug, but my Big Pony show is going to be super lolz, original drawings, new work and swag, and the chance to rub elbows with yours truly, not that you'll know it (February 19, 1453 Brenton). xo @hfxartgossip
