After nearly five years of gracing the Hydrostone in Halifax’s North End with the Maritimes’ best artists, Cheryl Bell is set to open a second gallery at Southwest Properties’ Bishop’s Landing.
The Prow Gallery will be located in 2,000 square foot space and house some of Canada’s best artists and allow the gallery to branch out with larger works than what are currently shown in the North End gallery.
“The waterfront doesn’t have enough galleries, and there is certainly a market with added density from local residents and tourists returning to our shores in the years to come,” added Bell. “We hope to bring more options to our existing Halifax collectors while also showcasing the art to regional and international visitors who visit Halifax waterfront each year.”
“We are so excited to have Cheryl and her new concept with us at Bishop’s,” said Colin Beiswanger, Commercial Leasing Manager for Southwest Properties. “We are continuously in search of owner/operators for our spaces across our portfolio with a passion for what they do, and this is true of Cheryl and her team.”
For Bishop’s Landing, the addition caps a busy retail period with the recently opened Pane e Circo salumeria concept from the Bertossi Group and new women’s fashion and homewares store URBN-ish owned by Malcolm and Heather Suttie.
“With the increased retail presence along Lower Water Street and new Art Gallery of Nova Scotia slated to open next door, we are very excited to see connectivity between these elements and The Prow Gallery,” added Beiswanger.
