The Broch Research Collective is hosting two events at the People’s Place Library on Friday, June 5th. In conjunction with Antigonish Culture Alive, the Collective will showcase the work of three Nova Scotian artists, Russell Jackson, Anna Syperek, and Bill Rogers, in the Bistro Gallery of the People’s Place Library. Their interpretation of the hallowed spaces of rural cemeteries will be the focus of this exhibit, entitled Beneath the Stones. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held on Friday, June 5th, 2015 at 6:30 pm.

Starting at 7:00 pm, Dr. George Thomson, an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow, will give his public lecture, entitled “Gravemarker Research – A Never-Ending Journey.” The public lecture and art exhibit have been scheduled on the same evening at the People’s Place Library to make it convenient for the public to attend both events. All are welcome.
