We are pleased to be able to open Scott Manor House this summer. We are very excited to host two very special exhibits.
The first is an art show in two parts entitled: The Group of Seven in Nova Scotia: Bedford and Beyond. Three years in the making and with the collaboration of twelve museums, galleries and private collections from across Canada and in Britain, the Fort Sackville Foundation has assembled for display more than forty works by Group of Seven artists. Never previously exhibited as a single show, these paintings begin with a focus on Bedford, where Arthur Lismer lived and painted side by side with A. Y. Jackson, and then shift to include Halifax, Herring Cove, Cape Breton and the South Shore.
Part 1: July 1 – July 22
Part 2: July 23 – August 18
The second exhibit will be a display by the Bedford Lions Club entitled: Celebrating 75 Years: Then and Now.
August 20 – August 25
