FREDERICTON (GNB) – New Brunswickers are invited to meet professional artists in provincial parks and tourism sites during the Labour Day weekend as part of a new artist-in-residence program.
The Fresh AIR Program provides artists with a location separate from a regular studio or workplace, where they can produce work while engaging with the public.
The artist-in-residence initiative will take place from Sept. 5 to 7 at the following provincial parks and tourism sites:
- Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel Dugas (multidisciplinary/media artists) – Hopewell Rocks;
- Bruno Jacques Pelletier (musician) and Charline Collette (textile artist) – New Brunswick Botanical Garden;
- Jason Nugent (photographer) – Mount Carleton Provincial Park;
- Justin Sappier (wood carver) – Mactaquac Provincial Park; and
- Jonathan Roy (literary artist/writer) – Village Historique Acadien.
The artist residencies will be subject to the COVID-19 rules of operation, including physical distancing.
