Irish-born Canadian artist Forshaw Day (1831–1903) presented his work, The Waverley GoldfieldsNova Scotia, at the international Dublin exhibition. Gold had been discovered in Waverley in 1861 and the Waverley Gold Mining Company included Day’s work in the provincial submission to the exhibition. Day had arrived in Halifax in 1862, opening a studio in the city and teaching art for a number of years. He later taught drawing at the Royal Military College in Kingston. In 1880 he was a founding member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. (Painting:  The Waverley Goldfields, Nova Scotia c. 1865, by Forshaw Day.)
