From Land and Sea

 
  Editor :   Dee Appleby  
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

A near-island bathed in salty sea air and brushed by steady winds, Nova Scotia is often shadowed by dark clouds one moment and lit by a brilliant sun the next. This ever-changing and remarkably diverse landscape makes the province an inspiration for artists.

From Land and Sea: Nova Scotia’s Contemporary Landscape Artists profiles 70 artists and their works, representing a wide range of styles. Dozay Christmas and Alan Syliboy draw from Mi’kmaw legends, June Deveau and Denise Comeau depict Acadian landscapes, and realists such as Tom Forrestall, Leonard Paul, and Alice Reed immerse us in a rare moment frozen in time.

With a foreword from Ray Cronin, director and CEO of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, From Land and Sea is not only an indispensable guide to the artists themselves, but a stunning portrait of a remarkable province.
