New works goes on display at Gallery 78 beginning Friday April 12. Through three new exhibitions, each highlighting work by Atlantic Canadian artists, the Gallery welcomes the arrival of spring and all the renewal and growth it brings.

Watercolour and Egg Tempera Paintings by celebrated New Brunswick painter David McKay, RCA, reflects on the transition and beauty of this season, the bridge from a cold winter to a sunshiny, blooming spring.

All the earth is fairy green,
And the sunlight filmy gold,
Full of ecstasies unseen,
Full of mysteries untold.
Who would not be out-of-door,
Now the spring is here once more!
– An excerpt from Bliss carmen’s poem, In Early May

Where the Blossoming Branches Meet is a group exhibition featuring new works by beloved Atlantic Canadian artists like Karen Burk, Alexandrya Eaton, Michael McEwing, Glenn Hall, Andrew Henderson, Amber Leger, Stephen May, Réjean Roy, Peggy Smith, Guy Vézina, and Francis Wishart, inspired by a line in Bliss Carman’s poem, In Early May.

Ouroboros features the work of Halifax-based photographer David Zsako, highlighting his ingenious and unique works of collage.
