Join Joseph Bengivenni for Creative Minds at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth November 27, 2-4 p.m. (Free)

More Details

The Creative Minds series features multi-talented artist and photographer Joseph Bengivenni on Sunday November 27, 2016 from 2-4 p.m. in the community room of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, located at 341 Main Street, Yarmouth, NS.  Joseph received his BFA from NSCAD University in 2004, where he studied drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, film, and performance art.  A passion for travel led him to form a more intimate relationship with photography, as he appreciated the realism and immediacy offered by the camera. For ten years, Bengivenni traveled throughout Asia, seeking sacred places, natural phenomena, and human interest. Recently, he’s returned to his roots in Nova Scotia, trading mountains and temples for coasts and lighthouses, seen with new eyes. His images tell stories of beauty, adventure or the unusual. His work is also on display as part of the AGNS “Take Your Best Shot” juried photography exhibit, which closes Nov. 27.

The third edition of Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie, Nova Scotia's first Gran Fondo cycling event, will be held on Sunday, September 24. The event has quickly grown to become the largest cycling event in Atlantic Canada, with 831 cyclists in 2016. Our Gran Fondo will appeal to recreational riders looking for an epic ride, to those that like to tour by bike, and also to the avid racer. Although a timed event, this is more of a self-paced FUN group event, rather than a race.

Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie is offering four rides in 2017. New for 2017, a 161.5 km SUPER GRAN loop will be offered for the hardcore cyclist! Experienced riders will be challenged by our slightly lengthened Gran 120 km or our Medio 67 km , while novice cyclists may prefer the shorter 35 km Piccolo Fondo. Riders will navigate rolling inland roads and pass by towering wooden churches along the panoramic coastal route that hugs beautiful Baie Sainte-Marie. New for 2017, both the Gran and Super Gran routes will take a left-hand turn after Mavillette Beach, and cycle through the picturesque fishing village of Cape St Marys. Both the Super Gran and Medio Fondo rides will take participants around the scenic Bas-de-la-Rivière loop with vistas of la Baie Sainte-Marie and Digby Neck. Downloadable maps of each route are on our website, including images and elevation profiles.

The region's famous Acadian hospitality and culture will be highlighted during the social event on Saturday, Sept. 23.  Residents will warmly cheer you on from the roadside. There will also be opportunities to sample Acadian fare at nutrition breaks during the rides and savour on fresh lobster afterwards. The Gran Fondo Baie Sainte-Marie is hosted by the Municipality of Clare, in partnership with the Vélo Baie Sainte-Marie bike shop. 

Visit our website for more information. Check out our promo videos and participant testimonials. Registration opens on January 20, 2017: www.granfondobaiesaintemarie.ca/en
