Works from the Donald Cameron MacKay Collection, Dalhousie University Archives

10 March – 16 April, 1989

An exhibition of the Maritime drawings, etchings, watercolours, and sketchbooks of Nova Scotia artist Donald Cameron MacKay (1906-1979) from the collection of the Dalhousie University Archives. Included in the display are studies of buildings and streetscapes – many since demolished – in Halifax and of the towns and fishing villages of Port Maitland, Wolfville, Bedford and others. Among MacKay’s earliest artistic efforts, these works provide us with an extensive and unique visual record of the region as it was in the 1920s. Organized by the Dalhousie Art Gallery and curated by Gemey Kelly.
