Art show opening to coincide with South Shore Lobster Crawl

Liverpool gallery will feature Lobster Tales & ARTifacts Feb. 5-16

LIVERPOOL – Queens County is gearing up to celebrate all things lobster next month.
From Feb. 2 to 19, area residents can experience Nova Scotia’s first-ever South Shore Lobster Crawl.
According to the website, the Lobster Crawl is a veritable feast of more than 50 sip and savour, lobster getaways, sporting events, art, music, heritage, film, local shopping and 13 different lobster rolls served up by resorts, restaurants, cafes, pubs and U-cooks. The events stretch from Barrington to Peggy's Cove and are aimed towards bringing tourism into the area during the winter months.  
The Sipuke'l Gallery, owned and operated by Acadia First Nation, is jumping right on board to be part of this historic event.
According to curator Heather Kempton, the gallery will be hosting a show to coincide with the lobster crawl. The exhibit consists, she says, of a group art show, video, photos and items related to the lobster and fishery industries.
The opening of the exhibit, aptly named Lobster Tales & ARTifacts, kicks off on Feb. 8 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Throughout the evening, Hell Bay Brewing will offer samples of craft beers and there will also be lobster snacks on site.
Kempton says the event is a cooperative effort between the gallery, the Town Hall Arts & Cultural Centre, Hell Bay Brewing Company, and the South Shore Tourism Cooperative. The event is free, says Kempton, who encourages area residents to attend.
The Lobster Tales and ARTifacts exhibit will be in place upstairs at the Town Hall Arts & Cultural Centre at 219 Main St., Liverpool from Feb. 5 until 16.
