Jul 9, 2012 in Arts
Truro - Members of the Truro Art Society are celebrating Nova Scotia through art, and a new show is made up of images created through a variety of mediums.
Although the show is called "Paint Nova Scotia", it also includes photography, rug hooking, cotton fabric and mixed media works. It consists of 86 unique items created by 28 artists.
An official opening was held with music provided by John Kennedy, and snacks and refreshments. Baked goods were donated by the local Heavenly Crumbs Bakery.
Artist Janice Guinan said that she is thrilled to live in such a beautiful part of the world and is inspired to paint by the beauty she sees around her each day.
The show, which runs until September 28, is being held at the McCarthy Hall Art Gallery,on the campus of the Nova Scotia Community College in Truro.
