“Two Rivers” » Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery
The project began with a challenge issued by the Mount Allison University Fine Arts faculty, based on their “In Your Own Backyard” initiative, for youth in high schools across the province to consider their community and their own backyard in their artistic journey. Two local schools, Woodstock High and Carleton North High, were invited to take part in this challenge; and the “Two Rivers” project was launched.
The title Two Rivers was born from the two schools and two communities who live and work along two significant rivers in their backyard – the Meduxnekeag and the Saint John. Artists from both communities were invited to take part alongside students as they tackled some key questions about community. Answers to those questions were part of personal journaling and group discussion before becoming the catalyst of artistic expression. This process has stretched each participant’s ideas about how our immediate surroundings can provide an authentic voice for our art. Artists have responded in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture and video, as well as literary, musical, and performance works.
Please join us as we celebrate the birth of a unique exhibit that considers how heritage and culture is deeply embedded in the heart of our communities. Come meet the artists at our opening reception May 23rd from 7 to 9 PM. A performance evening will follow during the exhibit, on Wednesday, June 5 th starting at 7pm. The exhibit will run May 23rd to June 29th at The Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery located on 8 McCain Street, Florenceville-Bristol, NB.
