Opening Reception: ‘Flora’ and ‘The View From Here’

July 12 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Flora: Ralph Simpson, Caoife Garvey, Claire Bridge, Heather McCaig, David Eeles, Judy Blake and Alexa Jaffurs

Seven award-winning artists from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia working in diverse disciplines create artistic connections in their work by addressing one theme – that of nature and plants in wood, iron, plant fibre, clay, glass, textiles, and fine metals.  Flora illustrates the social and artistic connections between the artists, their inspiration, and their collective reverence of the natural world.


The View from Here

Felicia Norris Bartlett: Felicia Norris Bartlett paints in oil with most of her work representing open spaces and idyllic landscapes. Her signature style mixes detailed clouds and skies with a touch of whimsy. The rugged cliffs of Fundy, picturesque lighthouses dotting the coastline, and the ever-changing moods of Passamaquoddy Bay and the Atlantic Ocean are all presented in delicate and serene paintings.

Theresa MacKnight: In this new work, Theresa MacKnight has created drawings and paintings of the interior of Sunbury Shores in a direct response to the Centre from the point of view of an artist, and longtime user of the studio areas. Theresa approaches her work in acrylic from many perspectives, always with consideration, thoughtfulness, and an openness to new challenges. Recently retired from fulltime teaching as an art teacher in the public school system, Theresa has turned her focus onto her art practice with increasingly consummate results.
