Join us in Memorial Hall for an opening reception to celebrate the Art Gallery’s newest exhibitions then head to the Gallery to explore at your leisure. We’ve got protocols in place to keep you safe while you enjoy an evening of art, music, food and drinks.
Guests can attend on Friday, February 19 at 7 p.m. or Saturday, February 20 at 7 p.m. Call or visit the box office to book your table at $25 per person. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance at (902) 566-1267.
Our exhibitions include The Drive featuring a major Tom Thomson painting of the same name. The show situates the work of Thomson, the Group of Seven, and their peers with contemporary Indigenous and Canadian artists to highlight the complexity of the representation of landscape.
Gerard Clarkes: A Haunted Land features paintings created in Toronto in the 1960s and 1970s, along with more recent works. In the concourse you’ll find large colourful canvases from Eye Candy: Recent Gifts to the Collection, an exhibition of works by Canadian painters recently donated to our collection.
If you can’t make the evening openings, join us in the afternoon on Saturday, February 20, for FREE 45-minute tours. There is a maximum of 10 people per tour so pre-registration is required. Tour times are 1:00, 1:15, 2:00, and 2:15.
