Illustrated. Lg 8vo, red card cover s. "If the spirit of Nova Scotia begins with its people what better way to discover this spirit than through the richly decorated objects made, used and brought to this province over the 150 year period represented in this important exhibition and catalogue. "Spirit of Nova Scotia is the first comprehensive showing of traditional decorative folk art from one single Canadian province. Dealing with the years between 1780 and 1930, the over 300 objects included in this show, reflect the rich heritage and ethnic traditions of not only this province, but Canada itself. "Divided into four major categories — textiles, paintings, watercolours and drawings, sculpture; and decorated utilitarian objects, curator Richard Henning Field presents these works not only as examples of traditional decorative folk art, but examines them within their cultural context, without separating art from artifact, orremoving them from their historical or cultural setting. These objects emb ody that union of function and aesthetic that is characteristic of traditional folk art" - from r. cover..

Foshay's "Aspects of Nova Scotia Folk Portraiture", Eric Ruff's "Aspectsof Nova Scotia Ship Portraiture", Terry Kobayashi and Michael Bird's "The Traditional Folk Arts of Lunenburg County", and Murray E.

Mr. Mills is a Teacher of Self-realization, a poet, and an extraordinary composer.He most graciously and spontaneously offered over 100 titles, as well as d esign modifications for the twelve sunrise hangings I had already woven. Then with great exuberance he delineated how the series could be expanded with six additional pieces for which he also gave titles and design motifs.
