Sincere Thanks to Our Donors

“The South Shore of Nova Scotia has enormous diverse artistic talent, much of which is hidden to even local residents. Our goal has been to help give exposure to artists who, preferably collectively, create new ways to celebrate their art more visibly in our community.”
