Artists Love Hockey, Too

Until June, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is featuring at exhibit titled Arena: The Art of Hockey.  Part of the exhibit’s promotion was a regular street hockey game among artists.  More from The Coast.ca:

image“You don’t usually associate art with hockey, but it’s inherent in our identity as Canadians,” says SUNSCAD president Stefan Hancherow. “But the arts community is never seen as sports-oriented.”

“We have some really good artists and some really good players,” says design student Cody Petruk, who creates the group’s fun promotional posters.

“Anyone with any skill level can play,” says Logan. “We have students, faculty, friends…even a few Dal students. There are some regular female players, which is good, because it’s not male-dominated. Painters, sculptors…”

Note: the painting featured in this post is by Lisa Birke, titled “Great Canadian Hockey Quarry,” 2005. Many more images available online at the NS Gallery website.
