Andrew Downs’ Zoological Gardens opened in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the edge of town in 1847. Stretching over one hundred acres in the area adjacent to what is now known as the Armdale Roundabout, for more than 20 years the Gardens housed regional and exotic animals in sprawling wooded enclosures. The proprietor, known to care deeply for the animals in his keep, was also a master taxidermist, supplying specimens to the world’s leading scientific institutions of the time.
The Gallery is pleased to present a public reception for the exhibition D'Arcy Wilson: The Memorialist. There will be refreshements and the artist will be in attendance.
