Celebrating 20 Years I OUR 20th YEAR KICKED OFF IN NOVEMBER when the Cultural Federations of Nova Scotia gave editor Ronald Caplan the 1991 Cultural Life Award for his work in oral history, history and photography through Cape Breton's Magazine. We are grateful to the Cultural Federations for their recognition. And as part of the 20th Year celebrations, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will present an exhibition of photographs from Cape Breton's Magazine. The exhibition will open in Halifax (March 28 through April 26), and will then tour a number of galleries across the province well into 1993. Our thanks to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and to the sponsors of the exhibi? tion • LASMO, the new offshore oil corporation. LASMO chose the Cape Breton's Magazine photograph exhibition because they felt that twenty years of the magazine was not only an achievement, but an achievement that significantly represented Nova Scotia. Their sponsor? ship makes possible, among other things, a 36-page catalogue of the exhibition.
