Five new exhibitions speaking to climate change, Canadian history, and Atlantic Canadian identity are on view this fall at Confederation Centre Art Gallery (CCAG). All will be featured at the Fall Gallery Opening on October 21 at 7 pm. The public is invited to attend the opening and view the art, meet some of the artists and curators, and enjoy light refreshments and a cash bar. The opening is free to attend, and no registration is required. 

Exhibitions include: Destruction Recrafted: Hurricane Fiona Up Close and Personal, organized by the PEI Crafts Council and featuring the work of 17 Island artisans; the currents that carry us channelled through the artwork of eight emerging artists with origins or long-standing relationships to the provinces of Atlantic Canada, a contemporary and interdisciplinary take on storytelling is explored; Daphne Irving: A Retrospective, a celebration of the lush paintings of one of PEI’s most celebrated living painters; Making History, selected from CCAG’s permanent collection, presents artistic interpretations of historical events, demonstrating the participation of Canadian artists in the creation of compelling and vivid images of the past; and Common Collective: 40-Tonne Viewfinder, an immersive multimedia installation constructed within an abandoned grain bin, examines how a specific patch of rural land is shaped and reshaped at various scales by human agricultural practices.  Environmental sounds and projected visuals transport the viewer back to the farmland the silo inhabited for over 50 years.
