Abstract (English)

Investigating the relationship between contemporary Nova Scotian art and the vernacular, Garvey contextualizes the premise of the exhibition and illustrates the participants' degree of indebtness to the folk idiom. Eyland examines appropriation, regionalism, and the precarious notion of the "contemporary Folk artist" and its determinants. The affiliation is further debated in a discussion between the co-curators. Biographical notes. 35 bibl. ref.
