ART GALLERY OF NOVA SCO­TIA Mon-Wed 10am-5pm, Thu 10am9pm (5-9pm free ac­cess), Fri-Sun 10am-5pm, 1723 Hol­lis Street Cen­turies of si­lence: The dis­cov­ery of the Salzinnes

An­tiphonal In 1550s Bel­gium, nuns scrawled hymns and scraps of daily life in choir books—but none as beau­ti­fully, per­haps, as the name­less writer who crafted the large-scale, vel­lum book known as the Salzinnes An­tiphonal. Thought to have trav­elled to Hal­i­fax in the lug­gage of an Arch­bishop, the piece was dis­cov­ered in 1998. Now, the book ar­rives at the AGNS to show off its curly script and gilded trim.

Rope­works Vi­o­let Rosen­garten’s stun­ning painted-rope pieces are a study in tex­ture: “I am in­spired by na­ture and time-worn sur­faces. My in­ves­ti­ga­tions into tex­ture have led to ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with rope and paint. Given the im­por­tance of rope in mar­itime cul­ture, I am us­ing this ma­te­rial sym­bol­i­cally to ex­press my at­tach­ment to this place,” her artist state­ment says. To Sep 28
