The Halifax Art Map society presents this guide to local galleries, studios, artists, artisans and shops for citizens and visitors alike. The Halifax region is home to many gifted artists and artisans who create their unique work here, display it and sell it here and around the world. Whether you are looking for realism, landscape, abstract or functional art or craft – all can be found through the Halifax Art Map. Should you see something that you would like to own, contact the gallery or artist directly.
Use this guide to find what you like, and to explore and engage with work. The numerous private and public art galleries within Halifax Regional Municipality host frequent exhibitions year-round. Artists’ studios are abundant, and there are shops and markets where locally-made art as well as art-making supplies can be found. And don’t forget events and festivals celebrating art and craft throughout the year, among them the Peggy’s Cove Area Festival of the Arts. ‘Like’ and follow our Facebook page for current news about events and exhibitions, and more.
Whether you follow the links to visit virtually or travel in person to the locations listed along the length and breadth of the Municipality, Halifax Art Map will help you meet the artists, enjoy the exhibitions, learn more about local art and art-making. Halifax Art Map Society thanks the participating artists, artisans, galleries, shops and advertisers for producing and supporting the unique artistic work that is inspired by this place we call Halifax, known as K’jipuktuk by the Indigenous Mi’kmaw.
