In this Year of the Arts, we honour the vital role of artists in the lands often known as Newfoundland and Labrador. Gather highlights this province’s growing creative community, which is rooted in close-knit ties and a strong sense of place. Artworks by beloved figures sit alongside recent and newly commissioned pieces, reflecting the importance of intergenerational conversations. Throughout, Gather is rooted in the many ways art brings us together—whether in celebration, remembrance, or solidarity.
