Saint Andrews-by-the-Sea has been a thriving artists’ colony since the latter part of the 19th century, attracting artists from across Canada and the United States to capture and reflect on the powerful and ever-changing landscape that is the Bay of Fundy. We have enjoyed a rich history of working with visiting artists such as Molly Lamb Bobak, Bridget Toole Grant, Fred Ross, Tom Forrestall, and Ann Meredith Barry. Today we build on this history by engaging with emerging and established artists, researchers and naturalists from New Brunswick and beyond through exhibitions, workshops, special events, studio memberships and residencies. Sunbury Shores is a gathering space for anyone and everyone who seeks a connection with art and nature.
