This was my first time at the art gallery of Nova Scotia. I have mixed feelings. I loved the Maud Lewis exhibit. Amazing to see local talent being displayed ... Her house ... Everything about it was awesome. The prime minister cartoon exhibit was fun. But other than that it was quite disappointing. Granted my frame of reference is the AGO in Toronto but even the art that was there wasn't displayed very well. No seating in front of the art for people who want to spend more time in one place. The tour guide had very strong opinions about the art which was a bit disappointing as well. She was not very knowledgeable but definitely expressed her likes and dislikes which was distracting and not a very good experience, for me at least. I'd like to be able to make up my own mind about what I like and not like and not be influenced by someone else especially someone who works at the gallery. Over all ... Meh will I go again not unless there is a special exhibition that I know about beforehand and know the reviews.

Came to Halifax for a conference and was bummed the weather on my only free day was dreadfully wet and awful. Decided to check out the Art Gallery and am SO pleased I did. The Maud Lewis exhibit was absolutely wonderful. I found the Shary Boyle & Emily Vey Duke exhibit to be really fascinating & I LOVED the Light Fantastic neon exhibit. Exploring the Gallery was a wonderful experience and the lovely woman at the customer service desk shared stories of Maud Lewis from her childhood. I highly recommend this place.

We had an excellent time at an "Art Party" hosted at the art gallery. The art was diverse and beautiful and the service was excellent. It is also pretty wheelchair accessible with only a few slightly steep ramps.

The shows were great. The place is hard to navigate but the maps and directions are clear. The staff was... Strange. The person at the front desk really doesnt like the local art school? A new personnel was getting trained while we were trying to view art, it was really distracting. The person training him talked very loudly in the galleries. Our group was constantly referred to as girls despite containing no girls and clearly at least one man. We went specifically for the illuminated manuscript show and it was very well done.

An interesting place to visit with a wide variety of art to see. It's free on Thursdays so it's really worth a visit!

Great art gallery. I was surprised how big it was as we were only attracted to the Maud Lewis exhibit. We were lucky enough to attend the free guided tour of the Canadian artists. Side note: the coffee at the on site coffee shop was probably the best in Halifax.

Beautiful works of art! Maud Lewis exhibition was on - learned so much about this artist and enjoyed seeing her house as part of the exhibition. Happened to stop in on a Thursday evening - and admission was free, what a nice surprise.

A really eclectic selection of artwork from all kinds of cultures, time periods and individual approaches to art, all well-laid out over an interesting and dynamic space. You're very likely to find stuff that you love alongside that which does nothing for you. Make an effort to check out the Maude Lewis exhibition, as well as the other paintings rooted in Nova Scotia life. Entry is free on Thursday evenings!

I entered this gallery on a Thursday night, free of charge, as advised by my tour guide in the same afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised at the huge collection of art here. They varied from simple art form by Nova Scotia artists to international ones.

I live locally and still enjoy visiting the Art Gallery of N.S. More locals should check it out. Can't go wrong with Maude Lewis and some Group of Seven.
