The Inverness County Centre for the Arts will be the site for a significant show in the coming weeks featuring a large selection of paintings from a lifetime of work by Inverness artist Virginia McCoy.
McCoy has been a pivotal figure in the development of the arts in Inverness County since shortly after her arrival in Cape Breton in the late 1970s. Also, through her involvement with the Inverness County Council of the Arts throughout the ‘90s, she was instrumental in the development of the Inverness County Centre for the Arts itself.
