  • Son's Detail from Form

Silversmith and NSCAD jewellery professor Kye-Yeon Son's works somehow find a balance between delicate and powerful. Known for working with wire, stone, various metals and hollowware she creates sculptural and functional pieces that make bold statements in the world of fine crafts. A winner of this year's nationally prestigious Saidye Bronfman Award for excellence in fine craft, on top of the prize Son's work will become a permanent fixture in the Canadian Museum of Civilization. "What resonated most with me, and what prompted her nomination, was not only the technical excellence of her work but the sophistication of her designs and the emotional content her work conveys," shares Susan Hanrahan, the executive director of the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council.

Nov 12- Dec 18, Mary E. Black Gallery, 1061 Marginal Road,

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
