‘Articulated Materials: Bridging Waters’ is open in the Frazee Gallery in the Saint John Arts Centre, Saint John, New Brunswick. This is one of 5 galleries in the building and what a beautiful building.
ReBecca Paterson, who lives in New Brunswick, was responsible for getting the exhibit into this beautiful space and she has done all of the work needed to mount the work. She will be giving artist talks in the gallery over the next 2 months.
Congratulations, ReBecca, on a job well done.
In this 3rd Canadian showing of work about the Bay of Fundy and the River Thames the viewer has to work a bit harder to place each work in its geographical location – if that is important to them – because both bodies of work have been combined. In the previous 2 exhibitions they were hung separately. It is interesting to see the differences.
ReBecca made a large 3D installation. Viewers are encouraged to touch the tactile, felted barnacles – an unusual feature of an art exhibition, already being enjoyed by viewers on opening night.
The exhibition is on until January 10th, 2014.
If you are travelling through New Brunswick sometime over the next 2 months do drop in to see the work.
And please let your maritime family and friends know the exhibition is on.
