Ground Rules: What the Spruce Trees Saw but Didn’t Say – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Ground Rules: What the Spruce Trees Saw but Didn’t Say

Unama’ki Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design is pleased to announce a new group exhibition called Ground Rules: What the Spruce Trees Saw but Didn’t Say.
The opening reception will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 5-7:30 PM at the Loft at Unama’ki Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design. 

Ground Rules: What the Spruce Trees Saw but Didn’t Say, is an exciting group exhibition based on an experiential learning residency program in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The four-day residency program was presented by Unama’ki Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design in collaboration with Parks Canada in June 2023. Thirteen Nova Scotia-based artists with diverse backgrounds explored new ideas inspired by the natural landscapes of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, while interacting with park interpreters and creative leaders. 

The Ground Rules residency provided participating artists with the opportunity to explore innovative ways of working in their medium, connect to their individual heritage, and discover the intersection of Indigenous knowledge and Western scientific processes.   

We would like to thank TD Bank Group for their support for this exhibition.
