Juried Small Works Show in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia,
June 30 – July 29, 2018

Opening Celebration: Saturday, June 30, from six to eight pm.

Juror: Ray Cronin

Inverness County Centre for the Arts Located in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the Centre has large, professional exhibition spaces as well as performance and studio facilities. Inverness County is a lively arts community and a popular tourist destination in the summer. 

Ray Cronin, Canadian writer and  curator was Director and CEO of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia from 2008 to 2015. He is the founding curator of the Sobey Art Award and the author of recent books on Alex Colville, Maud Lewis, and Mary Pratt.


Small Treasures are works of art in all media that are no larger than 12″ in any dimension. This is a juried show, which means artists submitted images of their work, and the juror, Ray Cronin, made selections without knowing the names of the artists. He has selected work from Canada, 27 US states and four other countries.

Small Treasures will be displayed in the main gallery of the Art Centre. The exhibition will coincide with the Hands Dancing members’ show displayed in the outer galleries.


Two artists, chosen by juror Ray Cronin, will be offered simultaneous solo shows at the Art Centre in the 2019 season.
