Halifax's first ever exhibition of art by Caribbean born and descended Nova Scotian artists, Kaiso, is on view for one day only this Monday, as part of the Caribbean Diaspora Cultural Festival.

“This new exhibition shows the diversity of Caribbean culture in Nova Scotia and brings attention to the contributions that Caribbean born peoples have made to the province in the visual arts,” says curator and Black Artists Network of Nova Scotia organizing founder David Woods, in a press release.

Paintings by Woods will be on display as well as work from Justin Augustine, Angel Gannon, Michelle Flemming, Laurel Francis, Habiba El-Sayed, Kaas Ghanie and selections from Black Artists Network members Heather Cromwell and Alex Thuku.

Expect paintings, quilts, installations, photography and ceramic sculpture reflecting "Caribbean images" as well as exploring "social issues and local African Nova Scotian history." The Caribbean Diaspora Cultural Festival also features dancing, singing, drumming, a domino tournament and more.
