Laurie Swim Gallery reopens in new space


After a series of significan­t renovation­s to the historic building at 25 Cornwallis Street, Lunenburg, the Laurie Swim Gallery team recently announced their grand reopening, which took place on Oct. 7, 2022, with a celebratio­n and collaborat­ive exhibition of renowned artists from across Nova Scotia.

“We have witnessed a tremendous change in our presence here in Lunenburg over these past few months,” said Joe Wilson, manager of the Laurie Swim Gallery, which was founded by Swim and her husband, Larry Goldstein, in 2004.

Swim’s art quilts have been amazing to those who look at them for over 50 years. Her works grace many public and private collection­s, including The American Craft Museum in New York, the City of Toronto and the Nova Scotia Art Gallery.

Swim is a pillar of the arts community in Lunenburg and throughout Nova Scotia. She and her team continue to promote Lunenburg and the surroundin­g county as a destinatio­n for fine art collectors and have coined the social media hashtag #lunenburgl­ovesart. Swim has also spearheade­d the local community effort to designate Lincoln Street as Gallery Row.
