Inspired by this seaside setting, Philip Hooper Moore created and opened White Point in 1928. In the decades since, ownership may have changed, guests have come and gone, but 90 years later this seaside oasis has remained, seducing all that have stayed. Inspired by the surroundings that envelop White Point and the 7400 km coastline of Nova Scotia, SEA’spired is a celebration of the sea.
With the show officially opening May 6th surrounded by our artists, the show is here for you to enjoy daily until Monday October 8th!
We invite you to meander and stroll along the shoreline to discover more than 35 sculptures by a collection of 19 Nova Scotian Artists. Some works invite you to simply celebrate the sea while others provoke you to consider our interactions and impact of our actions on the sea.
For a complete list of all the sculptures by location and artist, their descriptions and indication if they are for sale, take a peek at our Sea’spired Show Guide here online, then drop by the Main Lodge when you are here to pick up your hard copy and start exploring. Take a ‘virtural’ tour now.
Everyone here at White Point Beach Resort is incredibly proud to have this opportunity to collaborate with our collection of Artists who voluntarily responded to our call for expressions of interest last fall. Together we present this intimate and unique show of their works in our outdoor gallery, in honour of our 90th Anniversary.
Curated by our Gift Shop Manager, Cathie Pincombe, this show promises to be one of the most dynamic to be enjoyed in 2018. Our goal was simple – invite local artists, of all mediums, to assist us in celebrating the Atlantic Ocean in an interesting and unique manner that would entice our guests to really explore and discover a new way to experience our perch here along the edge of the ocean. The result has taken our breath away and far exceeded our expectations.
