Capture 2014: Nova Scotian Realism
Oni Nordstrom and Tom Smart
Perhaps one of the many wonders of nature and life that we have in our province, but it is very likely the image would be a realistic one. Realism is the cornerstone of Nova Scotia art.
An exhibition in Halifax is challenging the notion of what realism actually is as far as art is concerned. Organized by the Dalhousie Art Gallery in association with Professional Living Artists Nova Scotia (PLANS) the works in the exhibition seeks to dispel common assumptions about the nature of Realist art by presenting work by artists who are pushing its boundaries.
Two Cape Breton visual artists have been asked to take part water colour artist Christopher Gorey from Ingonish, and Oni Nordman who defies description.
