Artist in Residence - in the front window!
See handmade paper creator MELISSA KENNEDY at work!

New Brunswick Artist, Melissa Kennedy, is Artist in Residence at Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre, in St Andrews from January 7 – January 21, 2024. With her studio set up in the front window of Sunbury Shores at 139 Water Street, the artist’s explorations in creating and using handmade materials, including original inks and handmade papers, will be visible to all passersby. A public Open Studio visit with the artist takes place Saturday, January 20 from 10:00 am – noon.

The 2024 Artist in Residency program is supported through the generosity of the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation. A second residency at Sunbury Shores funded by the BCF will take place in April.

Melissa has an Honours Diploma in Fashion Design from NBCCD, and a Bachelor of Applied Arts from UNB as well as extensive experience working in other media, including photography, drawing, and sculpture. She has participated in several exhibitions and residencies and has received grants from the Canada Council, ArtsNB, and other funding bodies. She has taught at the Saint John Art Centre and the Florence Academy of Art in Italy.

The artist’s working process centers on the nuances and variations she appreciates in nature and that helps promote a feeling of naturalness in her drawings and illustrations.
