New Exhibition: Theme and Variations, 15 May – 3 July 2021

Paintings by Edmundston NB artist, Owen Munisamy

The Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery is pleased to be hosting an exhibition of paintings by a young painter working in Edmundston, NB, Owen Munisamy.

The exhibition titled Theme and Variations, is a collection of watercolour and acrylic paintings created between 2016 and 2021. Born in a musical family in Europe and having received his artistic training in England, Munisamy currently works in Edmundston, New Brunswick.

This exhibition is delighting an audience who willingly integrate their own humanity with technology on both minor and major scales.

Featured in the most recent edition of Created Here Magazine, Munisamy explores a form of abstraction that blends biological, suggestively human elements (which might remind you of the sculptures of British artists Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth) with the geometrical, hard-edged shapes of contemporary technology. In vivid and bold colour, Munisamy creates variations on a theme of collapsing and exploding spheres suspended on illusory planes, within expansive atmospheres and accompanied with surprising allusions to both art and the real world. At any point the artist’s imagery can transport us to the microscopic or to outer space. Another influence on the artist was Salvador Dali and if you can remember his famous melting clock, you are well on your way to envisioning Munisamy’s biomorphic inventions.

Coming from a family of musicians, Munisamy looked to music for inspiration and particularly at the sculptural forms of wood and brass instruments and their intricate mechanisms. Tree trunks, bicycle wheels, telescopes, lines, wedges, and the unexpected can all be discovered in these enigmatic paintings.

Explore St Andrews heritage this summer and earn a chance to win an exciting prize.

St. Andrews, NB — Over the course of the summer months, the Charlotte County Archives are hosting a new interactive activity for people of all ages. Residents and visitors are invited to come to St. Andrews to take part in a Heritage Hunt — a walk (or drive) around four blocks in downtown St. Andrews, at any time they wish — all summer long. Participants will be looking for distinctive architectural features, heritage houses and important buildings, and filling out response cards with their finds.

For $10.00, participants will receive a ticket eligible for a Grand Prize Draw at the end of the season. Prizes will include a free night at the Algonquin Resort Hotel, a 12-month Family Membership to Ministers Island, a Family Membership to Kingsbrae Garden for 2022, and a Huntsman Marine Family Membership including the Aquarium for 2022.

The ticket provides information about what to hunt for and includes a tear-off numbered response card. Each correct card hand-delivered to the Archives, or sent later, will go into the draw. One ticket may be filled in by more than one person but only gets one chance for a prize.


Charlotte County Archives Board Chair, Franklin Cardy, says, “This event will replace the popular Heritage House Tours we have hosted for many years in support of the Archives.  It’s not possible to open up houses to crowds of people this year, but we hope to encourage people to wander through our beautiful town, discovering distinctive heritage features and earn a chance in a special Grand Prize Draw or a daily door prize.”


The Heritage Hunt is running from Victoria Day through Thanksgiving weekend and will be open to people of all ages following COVID protocols at the time.

TNB Theatre School Announces Summer Programming

TNB Theatre School Announces Summer Programming

       Registration is now open for all summer programs at the TNB Theatre School.

This year’s classes will take place downtown with the exception of the Broadway Summer Series.

(Fredericton, NB) TNB Theatre School’s annual summer camps are a go for 2021! With continued
health and safety protocols in place and a few surprises in store, we’re excited to announce our
summer programs will begin in late June. Due to a series of planned renovations taking place at our
55 Whiting Road location, many of this year’s programs will take place downtown at St. Andrews
Presbyterian Church and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.

“We are extremely grateful that we can go ahead with offering summer camps again this year,” said
TNB Theatre School Director Sharisse LeBrun. “We have to continue to work with reduced class sizes,
social distancing, masks, no live audiences and the likes, but after a full year of navigating this, we
know that quality of education and fun will remain the same!

“We’re grateful for St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church for allowing us to use their hall for our Playtime
and Junior level camps, and the Charlotte Street Arts Center for use of their auditorium for our
Intermediate/Senior programs,” she said.

The programs offered this summer include Playtime Theatre (half-day sessions for children ages 5-7),
Junior Acting (grades 3-5), Junior Musical Theatre (grades 3-5), Intermediate Senior Acting (grades 6-
8) and Intermediate Musical Theatre (grades 6-8). In addition to these summer mainstays, we are also
hosting a Musical Theatre Advanced Audition Technique Workshop led by Broadway Actor Tony
LePage and NYC Casting Director Courtney Hammond. This amazing opportunity is geared towards
pre-professionals ages 15 and up and will take place Monday evenings at the TNB Theatre School
beginning June 21.

“We are thrilled to announce a very special summer training opportunity this year,” said LeBrun.
“Fredericton-born Broadway performer Tony Lepage and NYC Casting Director Courtney Hammond
will be offering a pre-professional master class on Musical Theatre Audition Technique. Over the
course of four weeks, participants will meet weekly to work directly with Tony and Courtney using
prepared material in solo and ensemble formats. The team will coach, give direction, offer honest,
constructive feedback on material, and help participants craft their musical theatre technique at a
professional level.

“I’m so excited for students to get to learn from Tony and Courtney’s expertise – from both in front of
and behind the audition table – this summer,” said LeBrun.
