Curator:
Year 2004 Theme Nova Scotian Artists, Painting, Sculpture & Installation, Textiles

These works from the university collection invite comparison with hobby craft, housework, and puttering. Plywood, acoustic tile, a tea towel and pantry equipment are some of the materials used. Artists represented include Gerald Ferguson, Kelly Mark, Elspeth Pratt, and Leslie Sampson. With the exception of a plywood sculpture by Pratt, all of the works were made in Nova Scotia in the last 15 years. A highlight of the exhibition is Kelly Mark’s 144 White Jars, a group of Mason jars containing white materials purchased at the dollar store.
