The Nova Scotia Talent Trust was founded in 1944 and has been awarding scholarships to visual artists since 1949. To celebrate the 75th anniversary, a call was placed to past scholarship recipients for recent work for inclusion in a touring exhibition. First You Dream: Celebrating 75 Years of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust highlights the practices of ten artists who were chosen by the selection committee, representing a broad range of media including drawing, ceramics, fibre, jewellery, mixed-media, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and video. Before opening at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia – Western Branch in November, the exhibition will be on view at the MSVU Art Gallery from May 18 – July 28 and Cape Breton University Art Gallery from August 16 – October 4.
 
Organized by MSVU Art Gallery in partnership with Cape Breton University Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
 
The Nova Scotia Talent Trust and partner galleries recognize the support of the Province of Nova Scotia through the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.
