The Art of Disability Festival is once again showcasing talented artists from this province looking to display their artwork. 

The Kenneth C. Rowe Hall in Pier 21 is hosting 27 vendors for the event with art ranging from photography to painting and sculptures to comic books. 

Meaghan Ernst, one of the festival coordinators, says the event is free for anyone who wants to go.

“I think it’s a really good way to see what this Nova Scotia community has to offer,” Ernst told CityNews. 

“There is a wide range of abilities, and it’s quite awesome to see what is being accomplished,” she continued. 

For those who can’t attend in person this year, there is still a way to view the artwork from, not only the vendors from this festival, but also from a few others across Canada. 

Those interested can find an online artist catalog on the Independent Living Nova Scotia website, which includes pieces from the artists and some information about the artists themselves. 

The event runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 14.
