Want to learn more about works in the collection and the research we do with art? check out the Acadia University Art Gallery blog, launched in June 2016!
We are working on digitising past exhibitions from the permanent collection.
Watch for the following on-line exhibits coming soon.....
The exhibition Picturing Landscape first on view November 14 - January 9, 2009 presents key works from the permanent collection and explores the different approaches to representing landscape among artists working in Canada. The works in the exhibit show the different ways in which landscape has been represented by artists, as a base for artistic experimentation, and also as one that could be manipulated to comment on wider social, ecological and political issues. Over 20 artists from the permanent collection will be on display including Richard Short, Arthur Lismer, David Milne, Gershon Iskowitz and Christopher Pratt. A catalogue will accompany the exhibit.
