Opening reception, May 23rd, 7 to 9pm
Join us May 23rd as we celebrate the opening of our much anticipated “Two Rivers” exhibit.
The Fine Arts faculty at Mount Allison University put out a challenge to high school students in New Brunswick to look to their own backyard for inspiration in their art making. Two local schools, Woodstock High and Carleton North High, were invited to take part in this challenge.
In addition to providing the exhibition space, The Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery brought in community Artists to take part in the project alongside students.
We have named this collaboration Two Rivers because we are two schools and two communities who live and work along two significant rivers in our own backyard – the Meduxnekeag and the Saint John.
Participants have responded to the project in a variety of art forms including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, video, written and performance work. It is also an exhibition that celebrates the process of art making as much as the final results.
