Arthur Lismer and the Halifax Explosion 

When: Oct. 12-Dec. 17 2017
When Arthur Lismer, member of the Group of Seven and the influential principal of the Victoria School of Art and Design (now NSCAD University), first arrived in Halifax, he explored the city on foot, capturing his observations in preparatory drawings and oil sketches. Here, the public is granted access to these visual diary entries, seeing how Lismer's work developed from rough draft to finished product—and how his ambulatory field work is a contribution to our understanding of Halifax’s history during World War One. Included in the show? Rare works chronicling the Halifax Explosion.
