May 8, 2013, Halifax – Portions of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax were closed on Tuesday due to problems with the sprinkler system in one of the gallery's buildings.

The gallery issued a release saying its permanent and temporary exhibitions in the gallery north building won't be open while the system is repaired.

A spokeswoman for the gallery said none of the collections were damaged.

Donna Wellard says that the gallery received a directive from the Nova Scotia fire marshal's office to fix the system.
