Opening Reception: Ella Morton, David Norris

Sunbury Shores 139 Water Street, St Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada

Sunbury Shores exhibition opening receptions are free to attend. There will be hors d'oeurves and a cash bar available.  Ella Morton: The Great Kind Mystery Canadian filmmaker Ella Morton aims to uncover how photographs and films can show more than a straightforward depiction of reality, and how the alchemy of analogue techniques can be reinvented in the digital age to tell deeper stories within images. Using techniques such as film soaking, bleaching, hand-colouring and mordançage, she captures the transcendent, mysterious, and fragile qualities of landscapes in and around Newfoundland. A documentary film which accompanies the exhibition, features Inuk and Mi’kmaw artist Amy Hull telling stories about her home in Daniel’s Harbour, Newfoundland. David Norris: The Adventures of Rivet Boy In this animated musical film, Saint Andrews animator and musician David Norris constructs scenes using photographs rather than traditional drawings, to make each moment visually compelling and captivating. The storyline, intentionally simple and whimsical, is crafted to resonate with both adults and children. The music and naïveté of the narrative evoke a sense of nostalgia for adults while maintaining an accessible and enchanting quality for younger viewers.

Opening Reception: Boissoneau and Choisy

Sunbury Shores 139 Water Street, St Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada

Opening Reception, Friday, April 5, 5 - 7 pm Lisa Marie Boissoneau: Borrowed Roots This series of paintings draws upon family research, familial archives, and personal memory to create large format portraits that explore the many aspects of identity. The artist was born in Moncton to a single mother and adopted by a Catholic couple in Quebec.  The artist appropriates images, stories, links and sometimes even ancestors who become an important source of inspiration in her work. They connect her childhood to the present.   Rotchild Choisy: MASQU-ET-VISAGES : Comment naviguer dans ses relations  Through his artistic practice, Moncton-based artist Rotchild Choisy explores his quest for identity and the social, economic, and political relationships people have with their environment. From his point of view, it's impossible to understand and know another person without knowing oneself. In his work, he often uses expressive drawing; he also reinterprets Haitian and African symbolic figures to make a correlation between masks, emotions and the environment.
