Working with the Craig Gallery was so satisfying for both Visual Arts Nova Scotia and our Mentorship Program artists. The atmosphere is very professional while also flexible and collaborative. Our Mentorship Program exhibition at the Craig Gallery garnered us our first media coverage of the annual exhibition with significant articles in the Chronicle Herald and The Coast weekly providing welcome exposure for the continued success of the program. I am certain that this success was in large part due to the dedication and promotion of the Craig Gallery, and I was happy to see several media outlets at the opening event to interview the program’s artists.
