Terry Havlis Drahos received her Bachelor of Design from Southern Illinois University
and her Bachelor of Education at Acadia and NSCAD Universities, specializing in Art and
Technology. Increasingly involved in the Nova Scotia art community, Drahos has served
on the Boards of numerous arts organizations. She founded and directed public art and
education project Uncommon Common Art (2008-2019), growing the organization from
an ad hoc group of artists to a registered charity recognized in national arts publications.
Her artwork, which has explored a number of different mediums, often examines social
identity and perceptions. Drahos has exhibited nationally, and is the recipient of
numerous grants and awards. She is passionate about art education, dividing her time
between her studio and art-making with children.
Tony Myers holds a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Leisure Studies, and studied
printmaking at NSCAD University. Tony’s work draws on the traditions of Western relief
printmaking, from medieval woodcuts of the 15th Century to Paul Gauguin, Edvard Munch,
and the German Expressionists at the the turn of the 20th Century, to the neo- Expressionists
of the 1980s and beyond. Tony’s work is both representational and narrative; informed by
observed reality without being constrained by it. Subject matter is drawn from contemporary
political issues, folklore, and personal experience. He is a member of Visual Arts Nova Scotia
and the Nova Scotia Printmakers Association, and has taught printmaking in public schools
and community organizations. Tony has exhibited in Canada, the US, Korea, Japan, and China.
His work is held by the Art Bank of Nova Scotia and in private collections in Canada, The US,
the Cayman Islands, and Australia.
This section will be under construction until we get closer to the date of the exhibition.
