Dates of existence



The Nova Scotia Society of Artists, founded 14 February 1922, was originally recognized as a branch of the Nova Scotia Museum of Fine Arts. Incorporated in 1938 with a membership of professional and amateur artists, the mission of the society was to increase public awareness and encourage development of the fine arts in the province. Its activities included organizing exhibits of original art works created in Nova Scotia, including annual exhibitions, first held in 1923, sponsoring study groups and lectures for its members and the public, and awarding the Nova Scotia Artist diploma. The society ceased operations from 1969 to 1971 and re-united to organize its Golden Jubilee Exhibition in 1972. The society disbanded in 1974.
