Bonavista Biennale 2017


Art Encounters on the Edge is the saucy title of an intriguing multi-site art exhibition in the new tourism “hot spot”: Bonavista Peninsula. Contemporary artworks by NL & other Canadian artists are installed in a variety of indoor & outdoor sites: a micro-brewery, fish store, old school, disused seal processing plant, beach & more. A map guides visitors to sites for a unique experience of this spectacular area where history & traditional culture combine with art by newer & established artists.

Head back to Duntara on closing day when shoreline photos will be given away. Take home your very own original artwork!

BONAVISTA BIENNALE 2017 Art in Odd Places
Visit a museum and art exhibit in one trip! The Sealers Interpretation Centre has reeled in giant floor-to-ceiling crocheted artworks. These neon multi-coloured forms will capture your imagination and entangle your senses. Peek inside a root cellar to find glass jars filled with illuminated plants and flowers. Then enjoy a quiet moment in St. Mary’s Anglican Church, reflecting on the history of resettled communities.
