Gallery 78 will open two exhibitions of new works this month to get you into the colourful season of fall. Texture and Hue by Matthew Collins explores the irregular and beautiful landscape of southern Nova Scotia through his expressionist and colourist lens. Love Songs: A Journal of Fateful Encounters by Alan Grabelsky features glimpses into what he calls, “the sweet spot between intention and accident.” His original serigraph prints are thoughtful visual representations of reciprocity and connection.

The works will be available online starting October 5.

Free tickets for the opening reception are available on Eventbrite. As per GNB’s latest mandates, masks are required indoors, and proof of vaccination is required for entry to the opening ONLY.
