Craig Gallery shows Curtis Botham’s Effluents Exhibition April 3 – 28 2019

Curtis Botham, 2018 winner of the 2011 Canada Games Young Artist of Excellence and 2017 winner of the Charlotte Wilson-Hammond/VANS Award, returns from his one-year artist residency program in New Glasgow, to share Effluents, a body of large-scale charcoal artworks dealing the coal, lumber and steel industries in Pictou County. 

Opening Reception:
Wednesday April 3 2019 5-7pm

Artist talk on Sat April 6 2019 2pm 

Drawings on display until April 28

2 Ochterloney Street, Dartmouth 

The work alludes to the history of these industries on the province, as well as the effects on surrounding communities. The work stands as both a critical examination and a memorial to what was once considered the industrial heart of the Maritimes.
