Join MSVU Art Gallery Director Laura Ritchie as she facilitates a conversation about the artists' experiences with mentorship and how it has influenced their respective practices and professional development.

All are welcome and refreshments will be served.


To celebrate the NSTT 75th Anniversary, First You Dream developed out of a call for entries to all scholarship recipients, inviting submissions of recent work. The final exhibition selection resulted in a broad range of media, including drawing, ceramics, fibre, jewellery, mixed-media, painting, printmaking, sculpture and video. The generational mix of the artists (indicated by the dates of their Talent Trust scholarships) ranges from 1979 to 2016—a span of 37 years. The exhibition includes work by Jordan Broadworth, Sandra Brownlee, Lux Habrich, Sara Hartland-Rowe, Dan O’Neill, Lucy Pullen, Pamela Ritchie, Despo Sophocleous, Emily Vey Duke, and Charley Young. The exhibition is organized by MSVU Art Gallery in partnership with Cape Breton University Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. 

The touring exhibition runs at the MSVU Art Gallery until July 28 before opening at the Cape Breton University on August 16.

American Sign Language interpretation is available for all MSVU public programs – please contact to request.
