The Cape Breton University Art Gallery now has a blog! See what's going on at Cape Breton's only university art gallery. Updated weekly

Wednesday, October 26, 2005


The Art Gallery is very busy this week! Lynda Shalagan's work will be leaving on Saturday morning and most of the permanent collection work to be used in People Watching has been brought out of storage with volunteer Saul MacNeil's help! Hanging will begin over the weekend and the exhibition will be presentable by well in advance of Wednesday evening and the official exhibition opening on Friday, November 4th (7:00 pm). Expect to see posters for People Watching around town beginning tomorrow.
I hope we will have a good crowd for the opening... it's always nice to see pieces from the permanent collection that haven't been exhibited in a while or at all. I always end up bringing my camera to the opening but forget to use it! I must remember to get some shots on the 4th and post them here.
Have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN in the meantime.
Take care and hope to see you November 4th!

Update #2

Just in case you didn't see this ad around town...

So far we've had a good turnout on these evenings and if this continues, we will offer extended hours once a week into the winter term as well.

See you in the art gallery!
