upcoming exhibition

The Collector
Curated by Suzanne A. Crowdis
June 6 – August 22, 2008

Opening Reception at 7:00 pm, Friday June 6
Curator’s Talk Tuesday June 10, 3:00 pm

This exhibition features a very special body of work donated to Cape Breton University Art Gallery by Gallery founder and inaugural president of the university, Dr. D.F. Campbell.

A man with a keen eye for detail, a strong sense of beauty, and a knack for building collections by Dr. Campbell has donated over 70 works from his personal collection. This exciting gift features paintings, prints, drawings, and sculpture by artists such as Robert Annand, Charles Chisholm, Charles Comfort, John Cook, Sheila Cotton, Christopher Gorey, Susan Paterson, Joseph Purcell, Gerald Roach, David Silverberg, and Robert John Young among others.

Please join us to celebrate this important gift and give thanks to the collector, Dr. D.F. Campbell, who will be in attendance. This will also be my last exhibition with Cape Breton University Art Gallery so come out to say hello, look at the art work, and say goodbye.

I look forward to seeing you in the Art Gallery.
