Truro Art Society

The McCarthy Gallery

the McCarthy Gallery

McCarthy Gallery, located at Truro campus of the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC), is the main exhibition space for the Truro Art Society. Truro Art Society offers members work for sale to the public while on display during the exhibitions.

The development of McCarthy Gallery has been a unique means of supporting the NSCC's vision of engaging Nova Scotians in new ways of applying their knowledge and skills while integrating education with community building and economic development. The gallery offers an original and enjoyable way for the community to become more familiar with the college and be very comfortable in visiting. Collaborative undertakings by students, artists and the community continually expand this outreach. All involved recognize that the gallery's impact is far reaching and holds social, economic and educational implications for artists, the college and the community. New and exciting opportunities continue to present themselves.
