One artist will be chosen for addition to the town’s permanent collection

Applications are now being accepted for the Town of Truro’s 2014 Art Acquisition Show.

This is an opportunity for visual artists — be they painters, sculptors, carvers, potters, rug hookers, quilters, photographers or others — to display their works to the public. As well, one artist will have his or her work added to the town’s permanent art collection.

The Town of Truro will host its annual Art Acquisition Show this March in partnership with the Truro Art Society.

Artists are invited to submit three works of art each for public display. It’s free to enter.

Information brochures that include application forms are available at the Douglas Street Recreation Centre, or can be downloaded online at The deadline for applications is Feb. 26.

The town launched its Art Acquisition Program in 2006 in an effort to create and maintain a collection of visual art that reflects the unique historic and artistic development of Truro.

The Town of Truro Art Acquisition Show runs from Mar. 4 to 28 at the McCarthy Hall Gallery, NSCC Campus, 36 Arthur St., Truro.

The public is encouraged to attend the show’s official opening at 7 p.m. on Mar. 4. The piece of art selected for addition to the town’s permanent collection will be announced at that time.
