    The many collections cover the classics, the indigenous people and a variety of contemporary artists. The special exhibits provided many examples of the artists represented.

    During our “10-Day Canada and New England” cruise aboard Caribbean Princess ship last October, we had a chance to visit Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market near Pier 21 and the Waterfront Boardwalk. After a pleasant walk along Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk, we visited the market which was between the boardwalk and Pier 21 where our ship was waiting for us. The market was vibrant and bustling with crowds around so many eateries along with diverse farm product and sea food stalls. Street musicians were performing music, generating a festive mood. One side of the market had a great view of the sea and an island with a beautiful red lighthouse. It was an interesting attraction in Halifax.

    We found many of the shops offering the usual and unusual retail and tourist items. Some shops were more unique than others. It is worth an hour to see the art and crafts offered.

    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.

    Nice gallery to just wander around and admire a good selection of paintings which can be accessed from either side of the building just off the boardwalk. We didn't purchase anything but understand that there is the option to send.

    Inside the Alexander Keith’s Brewery 200-year-old stone building near the waterfront is a small local farmers’ market open to the public from 8AM to 1PM every Saturday. About 40 farmers and crafters have tables on two levels. It is a not-for-profit cooperative effort with a focus on fresh produce, meats and baked goods. Keith’s Brewery has a shop selling its merchandise (caps, T-shirts, key fobs, etc.). A musician was performing when we were there. We could have walked past the Brewery Market on Lower Water Street because the signs for a coffee shop and Patagonia clothing were more prominent than the vertical fabric banners for the Market. If you want a brewery tour (with samples) they start at noon daily and cost Adults $26.95 and Seniors/Military/Students $23.95.

    This gallery is a fantastic place to mull and peruse the art of young, inspired individuals testing waters and pushing boundaries.
    Three galleries are devoted to the exhibition of art, craft and design with new work opening every Monday at 5:30 p.m.

    In 1887, to commemorate Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee year, Leonowens suggested founding an art school, which came into reality as the Victoria School of Art (later to morph into NSCAD). In 1968, this gallery at NSCAD was dedicated to Anna Leonowens.

    With a few exceptions the items, in my opinion, are "just" used, perhaps vintage, not antique.
    If you are in the market, some of the furniture pieces are a good deal.
    Know your price range and product if looking at jewellery.
    Plenty of "kitschy" items.

    Every time I have visited this market I slay find stuff I want. Maybe not that I need it but want. The cost is $2 to get in and the parking is free. It is a descent size market and there is everything from antiques, clothing, some food items and the usual flea market products.

    A small neat gallery run by a co-op of approximately 20 artists.
    Works of all sizes and media...oils, acrylics, watercolours, woodworking, found/repurposed metal objects, hooked rugs.
    The art is displayed well, with good lighting, and their location within the gallery is moved occasionally so that the space retains a "fresh" appearance.

    On a recent visit to Halifax, my husband and I discovered 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery in the heart of the trendy Hydrostone Market in the city's north end. The gallery is located on the second floor of a historic building, constructed as a result of the Halifax Explosion. The gallery's beautiful, sunlit space is adorned by the work of several talented Canadian artists, many of them local. The gallery owner is an absolute delight and very knowledgeable. She made our visit a pleasant one.

    This gallery is not to be missed! Enjoy lunch at one of the several fabulous restaurants in the area, then make your way to the gallery. It will be the highlight of your day!

    If you enjoy art galleries and purchase art, this is a destination gallery. Three floors of well curated art by Canadian artists in a range of styles, much of it depicting Canadian themes. Good selection of First People and Inuit art, maritime works, art of the Maritimes and Newfoundland. We spent 90 minutes here. A real highlight.

    An interesting concept offering the opportunity to rent artwork before you buy or for display in your place of business.
    Established in 1976 as the Art Sales and Rental Society, it is a not-for-profit organization with all proceeds benefiting the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s acquisition fund.
    A diverse selection of contemporary Atlantic Canadian artwork is featured.
    With limited wall space and a large number of paintings, most of the art is hung on large sliding "walls" that have to be pulled out for viewing.
