ViewPoint Gallery is an artist-run co-operative, whose members are photographers working together to nurture and promote their artistic passion and the practice of their craft, to exhibit and market their work, and to actively engage in the cultural life of the broader photographic community.
ViewPoint Gallery presents a dynamic approach to the display of photography with a mixture of solo and group exhibitions. The Gallery continually displays work by all its members, and showcases individual members through month-long solo exhibitions, accompanied by artist talks, presentations and other events. In addition to the solo shows there are several group as well as guest exhibitions shown each year.
Founded in July, 2000, ViewPoint Gallery began as a joint project between a small group of Nova Scotian photographers and printmakers who desired a gallery space in which to display their work. Initially a major component of the gallery, the printmaker portion of the co-operative membership gradually dwindled over time, until in 2006, after 2 years with no printmaker members, the gallery formally shifted to focusing on promoting fine art photography exclusively.
