Borrowing heavily from the language of wine, part three of this exhibition will be a blockbuster offering that will look at regional artistic production through the culture from which it emerges. The word “terroir” refers to the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate. Terroir is a survey of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia permanent collection with a special focus on Nova Scotia roots — the history and culture of the place informing its artistic community’s output.
