"Few cities are as fortunate as Halifax in having an artist of Dusan Kadlec's caliber to document its unique history. His chosen subject matter, old world lighting, use of texture, and obvious attention to detail portray the mood, the atmosphere, the very essence of Halifax as it was in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Kadlec's paintings of this historic port city are as accurate as they are charming, as objective as they are inspired." - from the dj.
