ProletariART in Sydney

If you happen to be in Cape Breton Friday, the Cape Breton University Art Gallery will be hosting a public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. to kick off what promises to be intriguing art exhibit. In place of the gallery’s traditional annual student-faculty show, ProlitariART is open to submissions from all comers.

Here are two preview samples. First, a detail from a work by peripatetic Coxheath photographer Ashley Harding, called Doors of Rome:


Second, a pen-and-ink drawing by l’Arche Cape Breton resident Gordon Mills, whose infectiously quirky art work has attracted a legion of fans in Inverness County:
