Reflections on Cod
July 2, 2012 will mark the 20th anniversary of the cod moratorium in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Five Island Art Gallery invites submissions for an exhibition of art works inspired by the story of the fishery in this province - a story about how a once thriving cod fishery and its demise impacted individual fishers, their families and communities.
Though time has gone, the memories live on - memories that we hope will be captured in paintings, sketches, textile art and sculptures. We welcome two- and three-dimensional contemporary works that tell a piece of the story of the Newfoundland and Labrador Fishery, before and after the cod moratorium
