The Convoy Gallery

The Convoy Gallery, aptly named to recognize artist Arthur Lismer’s work, will set up shop in the complex along Lower Water Street in early 2022. Lismer, an original member of the distinct Group of Seven, worked as a war artist in Halifax during World War I. His paintings from this era often depicted ships in the harbour, decked out in dazzle camouflage.

Owner Cheryl Bell, who owns the 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery in the Hydrostone, will be featuring many local artists in the new gallery.
