Jordan Broadworth in First You Dream: Celebrating 75 Years of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust.


“Scholarships and awards play a crucial role in the development of young artists. I graduated from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design into the recession of the early 1990s. Looking back, I’m not sure how I managed. I know there were plenty of miss-steps and false starts. The Nova 

Scotia Talent Trust came through at a critical juncture. The Scholarship enabled me to complete a body of work for a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. That exhibition was key to the rest of my career and the Nova Scotia Talent Trust made it possible.” 

Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at MSVU Art Gallery in Halifax. 

Jordan Broadworth was born in Esquessing, Ontario. He studied at the School of the Museum and Fine Arts in Boston and NSCAD University, Halifax, and received his MFA from the University of Guelph, Ontario, in 1997. His work has been exhibited across Canada in Museums and Public Galleries along with a recent solo exhibition in New York City in 2016.
