Peggy’s Cove & Halifax

6 reviews
Why not combine our two most popular tours into one? See the sights of the historic port city of Halifax and then take in the famous breathtaking sights of Peggy's Cove.<br><br>Our tour would commence from Pier 21 with its Historic block as the "Ellis Island" of Canada, where more than one million immigrants came through and more than 500,000 left from during WWII.<br><br>From there we will visit St. Paul's Church, the oldest Anglican church in Canada. As well, St. Paul's Church was among some of the buildings that withstood the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917. We will drive on to Fort Needham Hill where a memorial carillon was built for the victims of that explosion. Then we'll be on to Canada's most famous lighthouse.<br><br>Peggy's Cove is one of the most unique, captivating and exhilarating eye-openers in Nova Scotia. The quaint seaside hamlets of Shad Bay, Big Lake, East Dover and West Dover, to mention but a few, are also breathtaking.

Gerry Collins is a ceramics artist based in Moncton NB. A wide variety of amphora vessels comprise this exhibition. I found it interesting that some of the "pots" were different front and back.

My review may be too late for you to see the work of 2 brilliant textile artists - one focusing on embroidery and the other on weaving - that we saw in July but if the quality of all their exhibitions are as good as this was, then it's worth calling in.

I have been a regular visitor since doing my first review in May 2016, and I am always amazed at the quality of the crafts displayed - metal work, weaving, pottery, jewellery, painting, sculpture, fabric arts....... The gallery is a testimony to Mary Black's vision in promoting Nova Scotia crafts in the 1940's and 1950's.

This small gallery is located within the Nova Scotia Centre for Craft and Design. It is a public gallery with rotating exhibits by Nova Scotian artists and artisans. Because of the wide variety of different fine crafts, a particular exhibition may not appeal you you personally. The gallery, however, is an important venue to give exposure to all aspects of the craft community. Open year round and free admission.
