ode to studios: south


CreatedHere Magazine

We are seeking contributors for CreatedHere Magazine Issue 18: Ode to Studios, launching December 2021.

From the rolling tides of Fundy to the bustling historic splendour of Saint John, to an abundance of tight-knit, water-laced communities, South NB is an artistic adventurer’s dream. What artist hasn’t felt their creativity surge after a getaway to this region? The artists who live there are immersed in this wellspring of inspiration, and it shows.

Ode to Studios is our annual winter theme. This year we focus in on artist studios in South NB (for our purposes, that means preference will be given to artists in Saint John, St. Andrew’s, St. Stephen, Sussex, Fundy Park and surrounding areas).

We are seeking:

  • photographic tours of cozy artist studios and first-hand accounts of the routines, rituals and habits that guide studio practice
  • artwork and photography that explores winter or the embrace of a seasonal lifestyle
  • musings and poetry about the South NB landscape (especially the winter landscape) and the artist’s place within it
  • pairings of visual artists with poets/writers/songwriters, responding to one another’s work

This issue is less about long-form articles and more about largescale, calming imagery with short-form, poetic writing and artist quotes. Think coffee table book. For ideas, get inspired by the 2020 version here and the 2019 version here.

Only complete submissions will be considered. Please click HERE for the submission checklist and full details on how we select featured artists.

With thanks to the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation and the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design for funding our contributor fees, we offer payment of $50-$250 depending on contribution size.

Thank you for your help disseminating the survey and promoting it within your networks. The survey period has been extended and will now be accessible online until July 2, 2021.

We invite you to share this with your membership! In our experience, it appears that a direct email to members and social media promotion are most effective to spread the word, as well as word of mouth to friends, family, and colleagues.

Let’s keep the momentum going and reach as many Canadian artists and content creators as possible. To deliver meaningful disaggregated data specific to creative sectors, regions and/or communities, our goal is to double the current participation.


  • The objective of this survey is to help create an updated portrait of the artistic and creative community in Canada. The data gathered through this survey will serve the important function of informing future and existing Canadian Heritage policies and programs, ensuring the Department continues to be responsive to the creative sector’s reality.
  • Widespread participation today means more detailed data will be available to make public for analysis in the near future, as we all make plans towards recovery. This is why we are especially grateful for your participation and help disseminating this survey.

We look forward to hearing more from the artists and content creators you represent and work with!

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.

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.

Heritage Hunt tickets may be purchased in St. Andrews at:

Serendipin’ Art on Water Street

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre on Water Street

Cockburn’s Drugstore on Water Street

Honeybeans Coffee, Tea and Treats on Water Street

Fundy Discovery Aquarium, Huntsman Marine Science Centre, Lower Campus Road
