Home: The Art of Preston
Nova Scotia's Preston area represents one of Canada's mot significant centres for Black history and culture. It was settled by free Black Loyalists as well as enslaved Blacks in the late 1700s. This exhibition included both contemporary visual art in a variety of media and traditional craft by residents of the Preston area, as well as works about Preston by other artists. Co-curated by David Woods and Dr. Harold Pearse (the same team that organized In this Place: Black Art in Nova Scotia) and co-sponsored by the North Preston Cultural Association and the Black Artists Network of Nova Scotia, the exhibition celebrated the endurance and creativity of this unique region.
