Nova Scotian Women Artists in the Collection of Tony Saulnier

5 March – 11 April, 1993

Nova Scotian women artists have been active producers, teachers, exhibitors and promoters of art throughout the history of the province. Haligonian Tony Saulnier has gathered a remarkable collection of both better-known and lesser-known women artists, focusing on those who were most active in Nova Scotia in the early and middle decades of this century, including, to name a few, Marion Bond, Lucy Jarvis, Mabel Killam Day, Edith Smith, Margaret Semple, Ruth Wainwright, Helen Weld and Marguerite Zwicker. An informative essay by historian Scott Robson accompanied the exhibition.
