One of Canada's senior contemporary artists, Garry Neill Kennedy, compiled 80 pieces of his work from various exhibitions over the past 40 years to create a show with a unique flavour, Work of Four Decades.

"My work definitely has minimalist overtones," says the former president of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. His colourful and provocative exhibition includes paintings, drawings, wall works, books and photographs. "That's where I got my toilet training-the '60s."
