Nova Scotia's Contemporary Landscape Artists

Dee Appleby
The raw beauty of Nova Scotia’s varied landscape makes the province a mecca for artists. A near-island bathed in salty sea air and brushed by steady winds, the provincial landscape can be shadowed by dark clouds one moment and lit by a brilliant summer sun the next. From Land and Sea presents over 65 of the province’s contemporary landscape artists and their works. Each profiled artist appears with a short bio and artist’s statement, along with examples of his or her art. The artists covered in this book represent a wide range of styles prevalent in Nova Scotia landscape art today. With a foreword from Ray Cronin, director and CEO of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
