 Of all the various galleries in which I showed my work, Craig Gallery was definitely the most memorable
and pleasant.

 The Craig Gallery provided both my 2010 and 2013 exhibits with a bright yet intimate space to show my work and a fabulous location that attracts a wide and varied audience. Thank you to the Craig Foundation and its staff and volunteers for two great experiences.

 Working with the Craig Gallery was so satisfying for both Visual Arts Nova Scotia and our Mentorship Program artists. The atmosphere is very professional while also flexible and collaborative. Our Mentorship Program exhibition at the Craig Gallery garnered us our first media coverage of the annual exhibition with significant articles in the Chronicle Herald and The Coast weekly providing welcome exposure for the continued success of the program. I am certain that this success was in large part due to the dedication and promotion of the Craig Gallery, and I was happy to see several media outlets at the opening event to interview the program’s artists.

 I would like to congratulate you on a really fantastic exhibition schedule this year. The kinds of work displayed is really a whole other level of exciting.
